This Midlands county is as much known for its battlefields as its balti. Trace the Richard III buzz to Bosworth fields to reconstruct the War of the Roses. In Leicester, you can time travel past Saxon cathedrals and medieval guildhalls to space discoveries and shopping malls. Leicestershire thinks with its belly. The county boasts a vast covered market, makes veiny Stilton cheese and has a sizzling golden mile of curry houses. For an inland county, Leicestershire has more than its fair share of water. You can boat canal staircases, scuba-dive in flooded quarries and fish in local reservoirs.
