Why move to Leicester?
Leicester, situated in the East Midlands, is home to De Montfort and Leicester University, a Premier League Winning football team, Leicester Tigers Rugby Union team and the stunning Leicester Cathedral. Close to the M1, the city is a vibrant and diverse mix, with numerous bars, shops and restaurants opening in recent years as part of the regeneration of the centre. Students, young professionals and Leicester locals are all enjoying and reaping the rewards of recent a boom in development across the city to house the growing population.
The city is fast becoming a hub for foodies with a mass of choice from fine dining venues such as award winning Indian restaurant Lilu and the stunning The White Peacock on King Street, to fast food wizards Crafty Burgers or Bodega serving up world cuisine to the masses.
With London just over an hour away on the train, the city is an ideal place for commuters to the capital for work or entertainment. Transport links are regular and reliable for students and there are safe cycle routes in and around the centre for the greener residents of the city. With other big towns and cities such as Loughborough and Rugby nearby, Leicester has become an attractive alternative to more expensive surrounding boroughs.
