  • This has the largest collection of gas appliances in the world. Limited opening. Check first. Fascinating stuff.
  • Really cool museum and staff were so friendly and informative. Well worth a look round if you have an hour to spare.
  • Very interesting and familiar. Shame there is only the one in the country. Ideally more room needed and info next to exhibits or audio option through iphone and own earphones? Chuck a few grand at it to set this up and definitely 5 star. Of course a nice brew as you look around would help.
  • Great place to get a little history
  • Fascinating

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.
