  • I absolutely love Newarke Houses and can visit happily, spending many an hour within the exhibitions and gardens. I honestly think it's the best museum in Leicester, a real gem.
  • First time I'd been here though have walked past many times. A real hidden gem with so much to see, do and learn about Leicester's history. Free admission makes this a great place to stop by if you're in the area!
  • Excellent collection. Just amazed to see such huge collection. So many interesting things related to the world war. Absolutely awesome.
  • Excellent time out with the kids... enjoying trails and gaining knowledge.
  • Very interesting look at Leicester's industrial history and also the Anglo Sikh wars exhibition that was on was worth a look.

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.
