Visit Leicester

  1. Diwali golden mile
    Diwali celebrations in Leicester are famously some of the best in the UK and one of the biggest outside of India. However, as coronavirus restrictions continue to prevent people from meeting in large groups, crowds will not be able to gather on Belgrave Road for the traditional entertainment and fireworks. Instead people are invited to take part in the city’s first virtual Diwali Day celebration from the safety of their homes!
