Well Connected Nationally

Looking to fly? Then Leicestershire is home to East Midlands Airport, and Birmingham airport is less than an hour’s drive from the city. Train links are fantastic, with the Midland Mainline trains taking a hour to get you into central London and loads of local stations for easy commuting.

The M1 runs right past Leicester City and with four major motorways connecting to it, it’s easy to travel by car too.  

This perfect location has attracted some of the biggest global companies to our county. Large corporations such as IBM, Hastings Direct, Octopus Energy, Mattioli Woods, Amazon, Caterpillar, Next, Aldi and Santander call Leicester and Leicestershire their home. As a result, there is never a shortage of skilled, well-paid employment opportunities.
