Enjoy summer walks past the colourful narrowboats and along the unique waterways surrounded by Leicestershire’s picturesque countryside.
Foxton Locks consist of ten canal locks consisting of two "staircases" each of five locks, the largest in England. Spend a day here and watch the narrowboats work their way through the locks. Meander along the miles of canal towpaths and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Leicestershire's countryside.
Pay a visit The Bolierhouse and experience its unique interactive exhibition, where you’ll be transported back in time to see what life was like working and living along the canal in the 19th century, and using your smart phone or tablet, can recreate the famous boat lift using virtual reality.
The East Midlands Food Festival in Melton Mowbray is one of the largest regional food festivals in the country. Running for over 15 years, lots of loyal and new visitors can enjoy edible delights from some of the country’s finest producers, many from the East Midlands.
