Visit Leicestershire, a county as famous for its battlefields as its Balti. Trace the footsteps of King Richard III to Bosworth Fields and reconstruct the War of the Roses. In Leicester, you can time travel past Saxon cathedrals and medieval guildhalls to space discoveries and shopping malls. There’s also a sizzling golden mile of curry houses to enjoy, and further afield from the city this obsession with food doesn’t change. The county can boast a vast covered market and makes veiny stilton cheese. Leicestershire thinks with its belly. Leicestershire has more than its fair share of water. You can boat canal staircases, scuba-dive in flooded quarries and fish in local reservoirs.
