Leicester is an unitary authority in the East Midlands region, and the city lies on the River Soar, at the edge of the National Forest. What makes it stand out is a large number of temples and other places of worship, various historic buildings like the castles, The City Rooms, Secular Hall, as well as the Silver Arcade and Fosse Shopping Park, among others. The town also has a great football team that’s quite successful in the Premier League.
LET’S MOVE TO … LEICESTER
Think of Leicester and what springs to mind? The city has quite a few claims to fame so it might be that it’s home to the Adrian Mole stories, Walkers Crisps or a football team which defied 5,000/1 odds to become Premier League champions in 2016.
But both its location and its history mean the city has quite a bit more to offer, both in terms of heritage and a place to live.
Just a little south of the centre of England, it’s easy to see why it’s a transport hub, with mainline trains running north and south as well as east and west. The M1, M42 and M69 are all within relatively easy reach while, for those travelling further afield, East Midlands Airport offers connections to the more far-flung UK cities, Ireland, Europe and holiday destinations on the Mediterranean.
But, before any of the roads and railways were built, the Romans, Saxons, Vikings and Normans all had settlements in the area too, laying the foundations for a cosmopolitan city now renowned for offering a welcome to people from all over the globe.
Poles unable to return to their native country after the Second World War were the first to settle in the region in any numbers, Indian families following in the 1975s and then refugees from Idi Amin’s Uganda in the ‘70s – all integrating into the life of a city now proud of its ethnicity, represented by the Multicultural Advisory Committee, founded in 2001,
Leicester boasts two universities of its own – Leicester and De Montford – with Loughborough also not far away. Leicester City’s FC’s recent achievement may be one of the more memorable sporting stories, but the city’s cricket club, rugby union club and basketball club also played a part in Leicester being named the UK’s Greatest Sporting City in 2016.
Heavy industry is not the driver it was during the Industrial Revolution, although engineering is still an integral part of the city’s DNA – but the Walkers factories employ hundreds as they churn out 10,000,000 bags of crisps and 3,000,000 hot and cold pies every day.
Property in Leicester remains comparatively affordable, a three-bedroom semi-detached home not far from the centre fetching much the same as a one-bedroom flat in the middle of London. However, a search on any of the portals will soon illustrate there’s plenty of choice. Shop around and you may be able to find a selection of family homes with three bedrooms for around £200,000 or even less.
If you’re looking for property in the Midlands, don’t automatically dismiss Leicester in favour of Birmingham. It may not be as big, but the city still has a vibrant centre – with the Haymarket, St Martin’s and Highcross shopping centres offering plenty of retail opportunities – a proud history and growing corporate influence, with KPMG, HSBC and Santander all now with bases in the area.
