/ Leicester - It’s all happening

From museums and heritage to shopping and dining out...

Top spot for breakfast

Living in the city centre, you’ll soon find the coffee shop that gets your flat white just right. Leicester has cafés of all kinds, from authentic Italian family eateries, to vegan bistros, to delightfully old-fashioned tea rooms. 

Get to know the neighbourhood

At Aria, you’re in the vibrant heart of the city, so nothing is too far away. Step out of your front door and you’re ready to explore and discover – a hip new bar, an intriguing little shop, a sight you haven’t seen before. They’re all waiting for you.

Shopping and a movie

Leicester’s sparkling shopping centre is Highcross, just a 10 minute walk from Aria. Here, you can get your retail fix in over 150 shops, including the ever-reliable John Lewis, and all your favourite fashion, tech and sports stores. Meet friends for a movie in the centre’s cinema, followed by a bite to eat in one of its restaurants.

A taste of culture

Impressionist paintings at New Walk Museum or 900 years of history and a famous Royal tomb in awe-inspiring Leicester Cathedral? Perhaps a preview of the future at the National Space Centre, or some thought-provoking contemporary art at Attenborough Arts Centre? If it’s August, you can celebrate local life and culture at the City Festival. There’s always lots going on.

Let’s meet for dinner

When it comes to Leicester’s restaurant scene, you’re spoilt for choice! From gastro pubs to chic bistros, the city has it all, not to mention the famous “Golden Mile” of Asian Restaurants. If you just fancy a drink, Leicester has a good range of pubs and bars for you to quench your thirst.
