Why Move to Leicester?
Leicester City sits in the East Midlands and is the county town of Leicestershire.
It is a large city with a population of around 471,000 inhabitants. It is also one of the one of the oldest cities in the UK, with a history going back at least two millennia.
During the industrial revolution, manufacturing became the mainstay of the region and large numbers of factories and mills began to appear, particularly along Leicester’s long stretch of the Grand Union Canal, transporting coal and textiles all over the country.
Today the city is still known for its strong manufacturing industry which affords Leicester steady economic growth and great employment opportunities as well as work in other sectors such as distribution, design and technology, research, retail, and marketing.
The city is continuing to grow with the LCC (Leicester County Council) Strategic Growth Plan. This sets out aspirations for delivering growth (housing, economic, infrastructure) in Leicester and Leicestershire until 2050.
Being in a convenient central location means Leicester has excellent connectivity. Sitting on the intersection of two major railway lines, as well as the confluence of the M1/M69 motorways and the A6/A46 trunk routes.
Birmingham, Coventry, Nottingham, and Peterborough are all a decent commute.
Whatever your reasons for moving to this wonderfully diverse and colourful city one thing is for sure, it has a huge amount going for it and a very bright future ahead which will benefit everyone who chooses to live here.

Education is of a good standard across the region. Within the city itself, there are 70 primary schools and 30 secondary schools, most of which are state-funded with a few independents.
Many of Leicester’s schools have been awarded the coveted “outstanding” rating by Ofsted with a high number also having been graded as “good”. Well-regarded schools include
If you’re moving to Leicester as a student, the city’s De Montford University and the University of Leicester both have fantastic reputations for their teaching and research facilities.

The heart of the city is the shopping core. From the 800-year-old market which is one of the biggest in Europe, to the independent boutiques, arcades and eateries of The Lanes.
As well as the multitude of stores and restaurants in the Highcross shopping complex, Leicester’s top-class retail sprawls out in all directions from the iconic 146-year-old Clock Tower.

As well as the castle, there are ten Scheduled Monuments in Leicester and thirteen Grade I listed buildings, so plenty to keep the most passionate history lovers satisfied.
The award-winning National Space Centre makes for a perfect day out. The Centre is home to the UK’s largest planetarium with six interactive galleries, a 3D simulator, and a 42- metre-high Rocket tower.
