A Leicestershire retirement in the heart of England
Whether you want to explore the past and the exciting discovery of Richard III, enjoy the great outdoors at The National Forest, or experience one of the many festivals and outdoor events, there’s plenty to fill your retirement lifestyle with in Leicestershire.
Things to do in Leicestershire
There’s so much to enjoy in and around the county, but if you’re not familiar with the local area, here are just a few of the activities you can enjoy.
Visitors to Leicester can see the exact place where King Richard III’s remains were buried over 500 years ago at the King Richard III Visitor Centre. The centre gives visitors a chance to learn more about the King’s life and death – and to understand the huge events that led to his hasty burial and eventual rediscovery.
With the largest planetarium in the UK, six interactive galleries, and the iconic 42m high Rocket Tower, the award-winning National Space Centre is an out of this world experience, completely unique to anything you will find anywhere else in the country, and makes for a great day out in your retirement in Leicestershire.
When retiring in Leicestershire, you should check out the extensive history and heritage of the county. Discover Roman ruins, majestic castles (including the Belvoir Castle and the Ashby de la Zouch Castle) and much more.
The National Forest is right in the heart of the country, embracing 200 square miles of the Midlands. Spanning across parts of Leicestershire, the forestland was previously scared by coalmining and heavy industry; the landscape is now that of rolling farmland, ancient forests and newly planted woodlands.
