As one of the oldest English cities, Leicester has lots of attractions to offer. It’s a pretty city that’s easy to walk around with all the main sights based around the Old Town. If you’re looking for hotels in Leicester city centre, the Mercure Leicester Grand Hotel boasts one of the best locations in town. This stunning 4-star hotel is housed in an authentic Victorian-style building and has 104 contemporary bedrooms with flat screen TVs and high speed complimentary Wi-Fi. The hotel restaurant, Marco’s New York Italian, is a popular dining spot, while the adjacent Marco’s Bar is a great place to catch up over a few cocktails. From the hotel, you’re within walking distance to the King Richard III Visitor Centre, an award-winning exhibition where you can learn all about the controversial king and learn about how his skeleton was found beneath a Leicester car park. His remains have now been reburied in Leicester Cathedral, just a few steps from the Visitor Centre. You can also walk to other attractions such as the 12th century St Mary de Castro Church, one of the oldest buildings in Leicester, the Newarke Houses Museum and Gardens, and St Martin’s Square Shopping Centre. From Leicester city centre, you can spend an afternoon at the National Space Centre, with rockets, spacecraft, a planetarium and a cinema. It’s just a short drive from your hotel door and a must for kids of all ages. On the way, you can stop at Abbey Park, a lovely park with ruins of a 12th century abbey.
