Leicester was one of the very first cities to be served by passenger rail, and it remains a popular way to come and go in the city to this day. Whether you're in town to watch Leicester City football club in the King Power Stadium or have come to Leicester on business, Leicester station remains an important gateway to the city.

Things to do near Leicester Train Station

Leicester Museum and Art Gallery

Probably the closest attraction to the train station itself, Leicester Museum and Art Gallery is the cultural heart of the city and a great place to explore when you visit. Just a five-minute walk down Nelson Street will bring you from the station to the museum, and you can learn all about the rich history of Leicester and the surrounding area here, as well as enjoy art by local artists.

This was actually one of England's first public museums, opening its doors in 1849. Among other treasures, it has a spectacular dinosaur gallery that contains the remains of George, a cetiosaurus that is one of the most complete sauropod skeletons in the world. The museum also contains a fossil of international importance, the Charnia fossil, which proved that life on earth began far earlier than scientists once thought.

Along with that ancient history, there is an Egyptian gallery that holds four authentic Egyptian mummies. There are galleries displaying the history of Leicester, including a gallery that explains the search for the body of Richard III. There is even an exhibit on beloved animated film characters Wallace and Gromit.

In short, this museum has a little bit of something for everyone. And given that it's free to visit, there's really no reason not to stop by and see what it has to offer.

Leicester Museum and Art Gallery bag policy

For large items, take advantage of Bounce luggage storage near the museum. We allow booking online and can store any size of bags for as long as you need, from a few hours to an entire day or even longer.

Leicester Market

Sometimes, you want to get a sense of what a city is like for locals. And when that's the case, there are few better places to visit the local market.

Leicester market has been in operation for the last 800 years and has occupied its current location close to the center of the city for 700 years. It holds the distinction of being the largest outdoor covered market in Europe, so it's a place you can go in any kind of weather. Open from Monday to Saturday, the market offers almost 300 stalls, with everything from meat and produce to prepared foods, souvenirs, and household items.

It's a great place to shop for souvenirs. And thanks to its food hall, it's also one of the best places to eat in Leicester. Enjoy local produce from the people who make it at one of the city's most notable places.

Haymarket Shopping Center

For another glimpse of local life, this shopping center is a key part of Leicester's retail experience. Opened in 1973, this is one of the oldest North American-style shopping malls in England. It offers more than 60 shops covering everything from fashion to housewares to gifts, and the food court offers a variety of quick meals to keep you fueled up.

King III Visitor Center

King Richard III is one of England's most famous kings and was the last English king to die in battle. His death marked the end of his dynasty and the rise of the Tudor family, and he was portrayed as a villain by people hoping to gain the favor of the British aristocracy after his death, including Shakespeare.

For centuries, his last resting place was unknown, but in 2012, archaeologists discovered his skeleton under a parking lot in Leicester.

This Visitor Center explains the story of this famous king, including his life and death and the circumstances around his final discovery and eventual royal burial centuries after his death. It's the perfect place to learn more about one of the most fascinating characters in English history.

Airport travel from Leicester Train Station

East Midlands Airport to Leicester Train Station

East Midlands Airport is the closest major airport to Leicester Train Station, and this airport offers low-cost flights across the UK and mainland Europe. The quickest way to get from the airport to the station is by taking a bus from the airport to Lemyngton Street, then another bus to Loughborough train station, followed by a train to Leicester. Depending on the timing of the transfers, this whole journey can take around an hour, but the cost is very variable, so it can be anything from £11 to £50 or more.

If you want to make things simpler, there's a bus that goes directly from the airport to Leicester Coach Station. From there, it's around a 15-minute walk to the train station. The journey will only take around an hour and 10 minutes and costs £5 for an adult, so it's probably a better option than the train/bus combo.

Getting around Leicester from Leicester Train Station

Leicester Cathedral

This impressive cathedral has been the spiritual heart of the city for a thousand years, although most of the architecture you will see here is more recent. Although the church was extensively altered from the 13th to the 15th centuries, much of the Gothic architecture you'll see now is a result of Victorian reconstruction. Still, this serene and beautiful building is a great place to get a sense of the long history of the city. It's also now the final resting place of King Richard III, who finally received the honor of royal burial in 2015, 530 years after he was killed in battle.

You can reach the Cathedral from the train station by taking bus route 22A, which leaves from Prebend Street just outside the train station. The journey takes about 10 minutes, so it's an easy way to see one of the most important historical sites in the city.

Jewry Wall and Roman Baths

Although you won't hear much Latin being spoken in Leicester today, it's true that this was once an outpost of the Roman Empire. And you can see what remains of Roman Leicester at the Jewry Wall and Roman Baths.

The wall was built in the second century by Roman soldiers to protect the city from native tribes. Why it's called the Jewry Wall is lost to history, but it and the attached Roman baths are a great place to learn more about Leicester's earliest history. The walls offer an interactive experience that will take you back in time to Roman Leicester and learn more about what this period of British history was like.

You can reach the wall from Leicester Train Station in around 15 minutes by taking the Hospital Hopper bus. This leaves right outside the train station and will bring you directly to the wall on its way to the city hospital. It costs £2.40 for an adult single ticket, or £3.60 for a day pass.
