Living in Melton Mowbray
As well as being the home of both the pork pie and stilton cheese, various food festivals are held in Melton Mowbray throughout the year to champion local produce, and the twice-weekly market is also very popular with people from across the region.
As well as being a foodie's heaven, Melton Mowbray is a hotspot for history buffs. The town's heritage walking trail guides you through a thousand years of history, from a mention of the Melton Mowbray market in the Doomsday Book to a Roman Catholic Church built by the Polish community that, after exile during World War II, settled in the town in the 1940s.
If you play or enjoying watching bowls, you'll be interested to know that the English Indoor Bowling Association (EIBA) is based in Melton Mowbray and that the Melton & District Indoor Bowls Club hosts the EIBA National Championship annually.
If you fancy trying bowls for the first time, the bowls club offers three free starter sessions before you decide if you want to join - it's a great way of meeting new people!And if you're something of an ale connoisseur (or not!), at Belvoir Alehouse Visitor Centre you can sample the delicious range of ales brewed on site. Or why not take a tour of the brewery and discover how this wonderful range of beers is produced.
