About

Heritage Sundays

Clustered around The Newarke and De Montfort University campus, just minutes from the city centre, are remarkable buildings that tell the story of Leicester from its medieval origins to its manufacturing heyday.

During the last Sunday of the month visitors can explore some of these historic places free of charge. The area also has lovely outdoor spaces to discover including Castle Gardens and the tranquility of some of the city's beautiful secret gardens.

Guided tours of Leicester Castle Great Hall and the Magazine are available on the last Sunday of the month with a Blue Badge Guide. Booking essential. £2.50 per building or £4 for tours of both on the same day. Each tour lasts one hour. Book at Visit Leicester Information Centre or online.

Tour times: 11am The Magazine, 12.30pm Leicester Castle Great Hall. Please note tours are not suitable for small children who may need to be carried; there are stairs at both sites. Suitable footwear is advisable.
