Living in a city centre comes with a whole host of benefits, from a wide range of cafes, bars and restaurants in which to while away the time, to all the best shops and other amenities to make the most of. This is without mentioning the museums, digital entertainment and art galleries galore. However, with such a wide variety of things to keep you busy, it can be a challenge to find suitable student accommodation in Leicester city centre.
Leicester in particular, being a historic city, has some amazing places to visit, such as Leicester Cathedral – the burial place of Richard III – the Jewry Wall Museum, Guildhall, Curve theatre, National Space Centre and of course, the King Power Stadium, home of Premiership football side, Leicester City.
Heading away from the city centre you’ll soon find it’s surrounded by stunning countryside, too. Within these huge swathes of green are some magnificent areas of natural beauty to explore, such as Bradgate Park, Swithland Wood, Beacon Hill, Bosworth Field and Rutland Water.
The above attractions make it easy to see why people love living in Leicester and thanks to its two excellent universities – De Montfort University and the University of Leicester – it’s a destination for students from all over the world. See our list of facts about Leicester’s universities.
Whatever your favorite hobbies and interests, Leicester has it all readily available for anyone and everyone who is looking to further their education and enjoy life while they’re here. And, when you’re planning to get to any of the destinations, the county has an excellent public transport service, thanks to its many footpaths, cycle paths, buses and trains.
