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 Roman origins to its manufacturing heyday.

On the last Sunday of month, May-Oct (excl. Sept), you can explore some of these historic places free of charge. 

You can also discover lovely outdoor spaces, including Castle Gardens Park and the tranquillity of some of the city’s beautiful secret gardens. 

Why not find out even more about these fascinating buildings and book on to the tours of the Magazine, Castle Great Hall and St Mary de Castro Church, led by local tour guide experts for a small fee. You can book these online using the following links:
