Wrap up warm and cosy for Leicester’s spectacular Diwali lights switch on in October or join in Diwali Day celebrations through November.
Such a lovely sight, the Belgrave Road area of Leicester is bathed in twinkling lights from late October (with a big switch on event on 28 October) for Navratri and Diwali celebrations. It’s a visual spectacle not to be missed, but throughout the year there’s something else just as impressive. Lovers of Indian dining and world cuisine are amazed by the sheer number and variety of restaurants and grocers along the ‘Golden Mile’.
From specialist vegetarian and halal restaurants to all you can eat buffets and the more ‘traditional’ curry houses- which one will you choose to try first?
And if you fancy browsing, buying and tasting authentic Indian silks, spices and foods, the stores and restaurants participating in the Golden Mile Shopping Festival will provide you with the best chance of the year to splurge.
