Places to eat & drink in Leicester.

Leicester is one of the ancient cities of England being at least 2000 years old, the Romans developing it into one of the largest roman towns in Britain.
In Tudor times the Cardinal Thomas Wolsey was detained and taken to the Tower of London and Lady Jane Grey, whose great grandfather was Henry V11 became Queen for just nine days. Through the English Civil Wars and the coming of the Industrial Revolution there is plenty of history to discover in this city.
Leicester is also a Cathedral City, the single spire recording the place that St Martin's sits and 13 bells pealing through the city can be heard on Thursdays and Sundays.
A thriving city of mixed cultures too, it is proud to host Parades and Caribbean Carnivals throughout the year. There is good High Street shopping facilities with two excellent shopping centres and one of the biggest outdoor markets in Europe.
An interesting place for tourists is the Melton Road area where you can shop and eat sampling a multitude of different cultures. It is as diverse with the arts as with its cultures, holding comedy and short film festivals and having brilliant arts venues, theatres, halls, galleries and several museums.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Leicester or surrounding areas.
