Ay up, m’duck, let’s talk about Leicester.
One of the oldest cities in Britain. Shrouded in historical mystique. This is where English as we know it today was born.
It has historic stuff: the burial place of Richard III, the Jewry Wall, and St Nicholas’s Church – some of the country’s oldest landmarks. When your history goes back a couple of millennia, what do you expect?
It has competitive stuff too: home of the Leicester Tigers RFC (the country’s oldest rugby club) and the mighty Foxes: Leicester Football Club. That’s two top-drawer teams. Two of the country’s most popular sports. And Saturdays sorted.
And innovative stuff: like the National Space Centre. Oh, it’s the birthplace of local radio, too.
And finally, delicious, spicy stuff. If curry’s your thing, then Leicester’s the city for you. (Move over Birmingham.) Head to the Golden Mile on Belgrave Road – the best place to sample the culinary delights.
