Leicester is one of the oldest cities in England with many visual references to its Roman and Medieval heritage across the city and county. Leicester is centrally located in England, just over one hour by train to London and a 40 minute drive to Birmingham or East Midlands airports. The city has risen to world prominence in recent times. Leicester has, for many years had a great sporting heritage with successful professional football, rugby, cricket, basketball and speedway teams. But over more recent times the discovery and reinterment of King Richard III, the pioneering of DNA fingerprinting at Leicester University and the opening of the National Space Centre have all pushed the city onto the world stage.
Leicester’s industrial heritage is hosiery, textiles and footwear. This continues today although many of the city’s hosiery mills have moved to purpose built units. Many of the original mills have been converted into stunning loft apartments or plush offices. Anderson’s have let and managed many properties in these city centre loft developments. There are fabulous individually styled city loft apartments in The Cotton Mill, Pick Building, Exchange Building and many other examples across the city. The redevelopment and regeneration of central Leicester continues at great pace and Anderson’s continues to be at the forefront with developers and investors consulting with Chris Anderson (Director) on rental and yield potential.
What could be better but to visit one of Leicester’s many traditional pubs, hip bars or cocktail lounges, take in a live show or gig at one of several venues in the city. Or if you fancy going out to eat, the cultural diversity of Leicester’s population means that if you can’t find what you fancy in Leicester, you probably can’t find it anywhere. Music venues in Leicester range in size from the De Montfort Hall and O2 Academy Leicester, to some of our smaller favourites like The Donkey, The Soundhouse or The Cookie Jar.
The Curve Theatre is an iconic modern building in the heart of the city 100m from Anderson’s.
If you like a traditional music or theatre venue the De Montfort Hall near Victoria Park in the city is for you
Parks and Walks
Leicestershire countryside is simply stunning. You can travel about three or four miles away from the city in any direction and be in open fields, towns or villages. There’s a huge list of suburban areas to live in or enjoy visiting within a short distance of the city. To the south of the city try a visit to Foxton Locks, the largest set of locks in the English canal system. The ten locks and the inclined plane are fascinating. We recommend you refresh yourself at the pub on the bottom lock before you make the walk back up !
To the north of the city Bradgate Park is a must visit National Trust park. With wild deer, streams, stunning walks and the historic ruins of Bradgate Hall, the childhood home of Lady Jane Grey who was the ‘Nine Day Queen’ of England and beheaded at The Tower of London in 1554.
Rutland is around 30 minutes drive from Leicester and well worth the visit. It is one of Europe’s largest man made lakes and popular with walkers, cyclists and nature lovers. The bike hire and differing circuits of the lake are great fun (choose one with the pub en route), as is a visit to the nature reserve.
You can even try your hand at fly fishing for the famous trout ! Click here
