Leicester: A Thriving Hub of Different Cultures and Remarkable Attractions

The historic city of Leicester, which is one of the UK's oldest cities, is situated in the East Midlands, on the River Soar and close to the National Forest. It has a long association with the textile and engineering industries, although it is now also host to several national and global finance companies. It is a bustling, cosmopolitan city, known for its multicultural character - about 70 different languages are spoken by its residents and the annual Caribbean Festival is the largest outside of London. Shopping is a joy, with a large retail centre at Fosse Park, just off the M1, and two busy shopping malls in the city. The Golden Mile, which offers Indian restaurants, sari shops and jewellery, is the location of the city's Diwali celebrations, which are thought to be the biggest in Europe. You can browse Victorian arcades, designer outlets or Europe's biggest outdoor market. Leicester is also home to two leading universities and Leicester Football Club. Cultural life is rich and varied, with the night life ranging from contemporary bars and clubs to traditional pubs.
