Retire to Leicestershire

Leicester Cathedral


In the heart of the country, and with a busy city centre surrounded by market towns and peaceful villages, Leicestershire's full of local heritage and intriguing architecture to explore. You can visit the tomb of Richard III at the 900-year-old Leicester Cathedral, step inside the ruins of the Royalist stronghold that was demolished during the Civil War at Ashby de la Zouch Castle, or ride the Battlefield Line Railway from Shackerstone to Shenton.

You'll also find fossils and natural history at the New Walk Museum in Leicester, industrial heritage at the Harborough Museum, and live re-enactments at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre.
