Newest Review: ... the whole of Leicestershire with its A&E department. Castle Park: looking at the roman grounds and what things use to be like. BBC radio Leicester, the studio which you can go in to see them broadcasting their show live. Dominoes Toys: Midlands favourite toy store and Britians largest independant toy store! Highcross: with its 12 screen cinema de lux and 3,000 parking spaces and the largest John Lewis outside of London. This is a great addition to the old Shires.

Leicesters Great places and things: London road railway station: with its listed frontage of which the signs don't make sence now. New walk muesuem: with the mummys and dinosaws, a great one to see. The prison: with very large walls in the south side of Leicester, actually looking like a castle. The hospital: very big and covers the whole of Leicestershire with its A&E department. Castle Park: looking at the roman grounds and what things use to be like. BBC radio Leicester, the studio which you can go in to see them broadcasting their show live.

I have lived around the Leicester area for my whole life and have have mixed views on it. To put it politely there is a very eclectic mix of people shall i say, it was the first place in the UK where ethnic minorities occupied more than 50% of the cities residencies. However i feel that is a good thing and adds a lively mix of people, and there are some great restaurant in the city due to this. Shopping in the city is currently undergoing a face lift as the inner city is being completely redeveloped. The city has the big players like House of Fraser, Marks & Spencer etc to go with the smaller local shops and fashion boutiques like Scotneys. There is a very good Rugby Read the complete review

I'm 29 years old. For 28 of those years I lived in Leicester. I was born in Leicester, on the Braunstone council estate. I grew up surrounded by Leicester people, I spent my teenage years discovering pubs and clubs in Leicester city centre, I was educated and worked for a long time in Leicester. The thing that confuses me about Leicester is why it took me 28 years to get round to leaving the place. Leicester is a hole. A sad, wide gap in the M1. Lets talk about Leicester people in general (yes - I am one of them. But I consider myself to be one of the few exceptions.). Leicester people are rude, unhelpful, two faced and arrogant. Their ...

Who knows about Leicester? Who care about Leicester? Nobody, really. It's a city with a fairly low profile, whose name doesn't exactly send shivers of excitement running up and down anyone's spine. Probably the only times people hear of it is when buying cheese or going to their building society. Well, I know about Leicester - and I care, *and* I love it. I'm kind of glad it elicits such a feeling of indifference because I think it's one of England best-kept secrets. It's like a pocket-sized big city, brimming with attractive streets to explore and arcades stuffed full of tiny little independent shops - a refreshing change to the tide of ...

Leicester is a lively city, which is filled with friendly folk. I go regularly, and live very close. The shopping facilities are very good, offering many shopping centres with easy access. Leicester is easy to get to via it's train station, which is situated very close to the centre of the city. There are often events which can be enjoyed by families or just groups of friends, such as fairs and things like that. The DeMonfort university is excellent and offers a wide range of courses for students. All in all, Leicester isn't the best city in the world, but it comes damn close!! ... Read the complete review
