A multi-cultural city where people live in harmony
If you enjoy travelling and getting to know other cultures as well as other people, but you do not have enough money to travel the world, I have the perfect place for you.
Leicester, located in the East Midlands, is one of the most multi-cultural cities in England apart from its capital London. People in Leicester are friendly, generous, open-hearted and helpful. You should definitely get in touch with the locals.
Another detail, you will recognize very quickly is the city’s passion for sport. The Leicester Football Club is the most popular sport club in town and you will find pennants, posters and other fan articles everywhere.
If you are not into sports, you can walk around Leicester Lanes – narrow shopping streets, full of multi-cultural shops very close to all the Victorian buildings in the city centre. Furthermore, you might sit down in one of the fabulous cafés. After an exhausting shopping trip you can take your bags and enjoy a little break. There are about 2000 acres of parks and green spaces all around the city. Probably the most beautiful and famous park is Abbey Park, where young and old people relax.
If you are a huge art fan, Leicester is just the perfect place to visit. The city’s New Walk Museum and Art Gallery is full of people interested in art. Close to the Museum you will find one of the 20 libraries. Feel free to go in there and explore the huge amounts of books. You will definitely lose track of time there, because once you’re in, you never want to leave.
Leicester is also famous for its evening events. There is always music coming out and buskers playing in the street to make the people in the city feel comfortable. To sum up: Leicester is just a really friendly place to be!
