Curious About Leicester is a journey of discovery: an exciting glimpse into what makes this multicultural and historic city what it is.

Resident or just visiting you're bound to spot things you wouldn't otherwise have noticed.

Walk 1: Newarke Gateway to Clock Tower

Starting from the mighty Newarke Gateway you travel back in time to gaze on the Great Hall and former chapel of Leicester castle, before stumbling into the delight of Castle Gardens. Walk by the River Soar then pass ancient Roman baths, a 14th century Guildhall, and a resplendent cathedral where the remains of King Richard III are about to be buried. Finally it's back to the centre to finish at Leicester's iconic Clock Tower (1.5 miles / 2.4 kms).

Walk 2: Clock Tower to New Walk Museum
From the 19th century Clock Tower move swiftly into the heart of Leicester's famous market, the largest covered outdoor market in Europe, where its ethnic diversity can be experienced by all. Onward now to some engaging gardens, with a vibrant fountain before the impressive Town Hall. Finally, arrive at the elegance of New Walk, a tree-lined thoroughfare, dating back over 200 years, with a museum at its end (1 mile / 1.8 kms).
