Newest Review: ... like the 127 and 2 to Leicester, 1 to Nottingham, the Rainbow5 to Nottingham and the surrounding area. Loughborough, having a population of around 58,000 is a reasonable small town considering its university, famous for producing sportsmen such as Seb Coe and Paula Radcliffe. It is situated in the centre of England in the county of Leicestershire in the East Midlands, just to the east of the M1 J23 which is found near to the large village of Shepshed nearby. The main industry used to be the manufacture of cranes, but the infamous Herbert Morris factory has now been shut down. At this point in time, the pharmaceutical industry is very promin... more

As a resident of Loughborough, I can exclusively say that Loughborough is an average place to live. The accessibility is very good, with many major bus services, like the 127 and 2 to Leicester, 1 to Nottingham, the Rainbow5 to Nottingham and the surrounding area.

I have lived near to Loughborough for the whole of my life and also went to school there. It is a fairly average town, however does have an excellent university. The shops in Loughborough are not exactly awe inspiring but it does have some big chain stores like Primark and TK Maxx, those two should give you an idea that it isn't exactly high end retailing. It is quite annoying that the train station is right on the outskirts of the town and is probably a 15 minute or so walk to the middle of the town, however as the town is a bit of a nodal centre within the midlands the links to the big cities are not too bad. There are a number of good restaurants in Loughborough, for . Read the complete review

Having lived in Loughborough all my life I've seen changes in it in terms of shopping and housing developments. Loughborough has a wellknown and critically acclaimed University. Therefore it's got a big student population during termtime (porbably about 20%). The thing is there's not enough in terms of the nightlife to satisfy the students. Nightclub Pulse is above average but has a huge number of steps everywhere, this means if you are a bit tipsy you can have a nasty accident. I've not actually been to Club Xs, I've been to it when it was Echo's and was not too impressed with it. Discoteco (if that's how u spell it!) is adequate and can host Read the complete review

Loughborough's one of those places that very rarely gets into the spotlight, quietly going about its own business and rarely kicking up a fuss. Perhaps this rather isolationist attitude, however unwilling, it what lends the town a certain charm - few people seem to know anything about it until they get here. Having lived here virtually all of my life, though, it's a place which you can grow to love quite easily. Historically Loughborough's a major market town, a tradition dating back from the 11th Century or something ridiculously ages ago, which continues today on a Thursday and Saturday, and is seen as one of the most vibrant street markets in the ...
