If you’re new to Leicester or maybe you are bored of the city, TripAdvisor has come up with some interesting places to visit in the city.

It has suggested a variety of places to visit from museums, to parks, or sport stadiums. 

I have put together a Google Earth video clip to show where some of these locations are and what they look like.

My video shows the places in the order below:

  1. King Richard III Visitor Centre – Visitors can learn about the King’s life and death. His remains were buried here for around 500 years. It is in Leicester City centre opposite the Leicester Cathedral.
  2. National Space Centre – Here you will get a 360 full dome experience. They host many weekend events and astronomy evenings you can join in on.
  3. Leicester Museum & Art Gallery – Another place for people who are interested in history. They have displays and collections from all over the world.
  4. Curve Theatre – Home of Leicester’s theatre and showcases emerging talent and also some of the world’s finest.
  5. King Power Stadium – Home of Leicester City Football Club. If you’re interested in football this is the place to be in Leicester.
  6. Abbey Park – A nice space to relax with friends or by yourself.

Angelo Perera, who moved to Leicester a few years ago, said: “As a football fan, one of the first places I visited was the King Power Stadium and it was great. The National Space Centre was fun too as I managed to capture a great experience which I will remember for a long time.”

Kuldip, who has lived in Leicester for over 20 years, said: “The King Richard Visitor Centre was fascinating as they told us how his remains were found. Also, Belgrave Road is a great place to go to for Asians like myself as it really represents our culture well.”

This is a list of some of the best places to visit in Leicester. Let us know which ones really interested you.
