Why move to Leicester?
Leicester is a vibrant city, and the largest in the East Midlands. Boasting two universities, large parks, leisure facilities, a large market, visitor attractions, great shopping not to mention the last resting place of King Richard III, and a thriving housing market, it is a firm favourite with young people, families and those who love and enjoy all a busy city has to offer.
Travel pioneer Thomas Cook ran his first railway excursion in Leicester in 1841 and visitors can follow the route by steam train today. Elsewhere visits can be taken to the last working bell foundry in the country or the official home of Triumph Motorcycles.
Leicester has long been associated with the textile industry and still retains some important businesses including Boden and Next. It has the second largest economy in the East Midlands with businesses such as KPMG, Santander, British Gas, HSBC and BT who have made the city their home, offering plenty of job opportunities.
Leicester is easy to get to and around thanks to its proximity to the M1, M6, M42 and major road networks leading both north and south. It is therefore within easy reach of cities such as Birmingham, Coventry, London and Leeds. It is also on the main train route to Kings Cross St Pancras as well as stations further north. Regular bus services are available, East Midlands airport is nearby and there is a large cycle network too.
Leicester is home to a number of great schools both state and private making it a sought-after place for families. There are also two excellent universities and colleges of further education.
Those who love sport will love Leicester! Football, rugby, cricket, basketball and greyhound racing are all important sports activities in the city. Elsewhere there are leisure centres enabling amateur sports from netball to swimming, hockey to athletics – something for everyone!
Leicester is a vibrant city with a great atmosphere and community spirit. Boasting a large student population there are plenty of nightclubs, bars and restaurants as well as museums and galleries, the Curve Theatre, Highcross Leicester and the National Space Centre. Each year a range of live music and festivals take place in and around the city adding to its buzzy atmosphere.
The housing stock is varied and there is something for every budget from flats to terraced houses, period, characterful properties to mansions and everything in between. Given its location, job opportunities, excellent road and rail links, good schools, and a thriving and welcoming community, it’s no wonder Leicester is a desirable and sought-after place to live.
The heart of Leicester is the shopping area which includes the 800-year-old market, which is one of the biggest in Europe. There are also independent boutiques, arcades and plenty of places to eat and drink in The Lanes alongside high street chains in the Highcross shopping area. It also boasts lots of well-regarded cafes, pubs, restaurants and hotels alongside all the usual supermarkets, post offices and other important amenities.
