Leicestershire’s Market Towns

Why not visit one of Leicestershire’s unique and diverse Market Towns? Foodies should head to Melton Mowbray, with its rich food offer including seeing the award winning Dickinson and Morris Pork Pies being hand turned, through to Melton Cheeseboard where the local Long Clawson Dairy Stilton can be sampled.

Market Harborough is the quintessentially English market town with the historic Grammar school and a wide range of high quality independent shops to satisfy every taste and a wide range of eateries and an award winning indoor market.

Loughborough, with its large award-winning outdoor market and heritage links to the Bell Foundry, Great Central Railway and the Carillion Tower, is the perfect stop for heritage lovers. Loughborough is also the gateway to Charnwood Forest for those who prefer to experience the outdoors - nature lovers can walk through to Bradgate Park for the ultimate Leicestershire countryside experience.
