One of the oldest cities in England, Leicester is a vibrant multicultural city, located in the East Midlands region, not far from Derby, Northampton and Nottingham. While at first, it may seem like another of the UK's industrial cities, Leicester holds many surprises for visitors to discover, and with your car rental from Auto Europe, you can explore them all! Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Leicester is both easy and economical.
To begin exploring this unique part of England, drive your rental car into the city centre, and check out the Jewry Wall Museum. Built around a section of wall which dates back almost 2000 years, the museum tells the tale of local people, from prehistoric times through to the medieval period. With great displays and collections of architecture and artifacts, this is a great way to learn about the area's past.
A short drive north of here, you can see some more historic remains, at a part of the city called Abbey Park. The park contains the remains of a 12th-century church, and also a 17th-century mansion, another great peek into how the city once looked.
Not far from here is a great attraction for the whole family, the National Space Centre, which is the leading space attraction in the UK. Here you will see displays on our solar system and galaxy, with great interactive exhibits also.
A truly unique attraction in Leicester which is not to be missed is the famous Golden Mile which is a section of Belgrave Rd. Popular with locals as well as visitors from other cities, the Golden Mile is made up of a large number of authentic Indian restaurants, clothing stores and jewellers. A vibrant area indeed, and a prime example of the city's multicultural population.
