  • There were some interesting exhibits here, but it is a long walk from the center of town, so it is not worthwhile unless you happen to be nearby.  more »

  • Really great museum with a very large collection of Roman, Saxon, medieval and iron age artifacts.
  • Very interesting bath house ruins, shame the museum wasn't open, we will definitely return after February. The St Nicholas Circle car park is a lot on the expensive side.
  • Excellent museum for all ages. Covers so much local history of the finds that were made as Leicester redevelops and of course the Roman baths that were discovered and can be viewed on the site. Plenty of information for all ages and displays including ones that younger kids can touch
  • Done the best they can with a very limited budget. Very dated
  • Really interesting history at this free museum. There was plenty of free things for the young kids to do and lots of history to read about.

Where to stay in Leicester

A B&B near Leicester Clock Tower is within walking distance of the main attractions. Charming architecture surrounds the clock tower square and makes a lovely backdrop to walking tours of the city. For a luxury hotel, consider staying in a renovated Victorian building on the outskirts of the city center.
