Why Move to Leicestershire?
Leicestershire takes its name from the city of Leicester located at its centre.
The ceremonial county, the non-metropolitan county plus the city of Leicester combined, has a total population of just over 1 million (2016 estimate), more than half of which lives in the Leicester Urban Area. Surrounded by large cities, Birmingham, Coventry, Nottingham and Derby, Leicestershire sits very conveniently in the middle of England.
The main M1 artery cuts right through it making it ideally located to reach all major parts of this region of the UK. A very scenic county, with exciting and unique Leicester City at its centre. You will discover plenty of open spaces and notable green areas to visit such as Beacon Hill, Swithland Woods, various forests and the stunning Bradgate Park which covers around 850 acres.
Although landlocked, Rutland Water a huge reservoir, has its own little lake beaches for you to enjoy when the weather allows. The 23-mile perimeter track is the ideal spot for walking or cycling. Whether you love or loathe sport, there’s no getting away from it in Leicester. The football club Leicester City and rugby club Leicester Tigers take centre stage and hold many loyal fans.
Leicestershire is a busy county with a multi-cultural population which is reflected in its festivals. The Diwali Festival of Light is well attended, and showcased colourful lights, music, and fireworks. Whilst the East Midlands Food Festival is rated as one of the world’s most interesting food festivals in the UK. Engineering has long been an important part of Leicestershire’s economy with a large number of companies having a presence in the county such as Ultima Sports Ltd and Triumph Motorcycles, located in Hinckley.
The county also has a long history of livestock farming which continues to this day.
The Leicestershire County Show is held on the first Bank Holiday in May each year and includes animal showings, trade exhibitions, and show jumping. A foodie heaven, Stilton and Red Leicester cheeses and the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie are three of the county’s most famous contributions to English cuisine and all made in Leicestershire.
Perhaps not so well known is that in some southern towns, Market Harborough for instance, you can reach London in less than an hour! With so many positive aspects, there’s a whole lot to be gained from moving to Leicestershire.
