Tropical Birdland is a unique visitor attraction which is home to over 250 birds with a variety of stunning free-flying parrots from all around the world. We are set in 6.5 acres of English countryside which houses aviaries, woodlands and a restaurant, to name a few.
Took our grandchildren here and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They loved having the birds perch on them in the bird garden. It is suitable for all ages.

This is a really good bespoke rugby stadium. Unfortunately it is badly let down by a number of important features of a sporting stadium primarily the poor service in the food and drink outlets which is both badly organised and painfully slow. To the extent that it is worthwhile purchasing food, snacks and drink outside the ground and taking it in with you. The toilets do not have a dedicated in and out door so a visit to the toilet is a lengthy process. This is comparing the Tigers facilities with other grounds such as Quins,Wasps, Northampton or even Bath. The facility no longer has a club atmosphere such the other mentioned grounds.

The new King Richard III Visitor Centre is in Leicester city centre, opposite Leicester Cathedral. It has been created around the poignant spot where King Richard III's remains were buried for more than 500 years. Using storytelling, design and 21st century technology, visitors can discover the fascinating and moving story of the King's life and death, and one of the greatest archaeological detective stories ever told
Blown away by how good this place is. So interesting and informative in a modern setting. Couldn’t believe they’ve actually contained the area where Richard III was discovered buried in the car park and all enclosed for a breathtaking viewing! Follow this by a visit to the Cathedral to view his tomb.

Newarke Houses Museum is composed of two historic houses, Wygston's Chantry House and Skeffington House and tells the story of contemporary Leicester and the history of the Royal Leicestershire Regiment. The museum displays include a cinema experience, a collection of toys from Tudor to present day and a play area for children to try various games. Find out more about Leicester's famous son Daniel Lambert and visit a 1950s street scene inspired by Wharf Street that includes the Jolly Angler public house, a grocer and a pawnbroker, with sounds and conversations from the times. Discover more about the story of Leicester at War. Through personal stories find out about the home front and the history of the Regiment, including a recreation of a First World War trench with sound and lighting. Through oral histories, archive film, computer interactives and collections discover the histories of Newarke Houses, the surrounding historic area and contemporary Leicester.
Newarke House used to be owned by the County Council and you could visit and see some original Jacobean furniture but it has now been handed over and turned into an amazing museum with friendly helpful staff. As you walk through the house, which is impressive enough, you encounter widely diverse displays which include a world war one trench with sights and sounds and a cobbled street with shops and a pub! (no beer available here though!) Well worth a visit and entry is free but please leave a donation at the exit.

Abbey Park is such an amazing place to go. Beautiful surroundings which are lovely for a walk, The petting area is a great place to visit too and there is a lovely small cafe in the middle of the park with tasty cakes and drinks. I would recommend coming to this park for anyone who enjoys being outside and seeing the beauty of nature. I love it here.

Curve Theatre is Leicester’s magnificent home for theatre and the performing arts and is situated at the heart of the city’s Cultural Quarter. Curve is a proud supporter of new and emerging talent and actively participates in the development of the next generation of artists, writers and directors. As well as presenting some of the world’s finest touring work, Curve produces a varied programme of diverse, exciting and inspiring theatre including large scale musicals to rival the West End.
Reviewed Curve last year and not very positively. Sad to say our trip yesterday was still no better from the theatre point of view . We weren’t sure where our door to enter was and two members of staff-standing chatting-said they didn’t know either!!! As we left the show on a high, the cafe staff had already stacked all the chairs on top of the tables and were mopping... very unprofessional!! Such an uninspiring building-glad the Haymarket is making a return! Have to say though the Matilda show is superb once you enter the auditorium.

Not the largest of cathedrals as originally a church but in some ways that adds to the character of the place which of course is now famous for the fact Richard 3rd is buried there. Free to enter (although they do suggest a donation) the Cathedral is very well maintained and lots of people around to share the history of the place. Calm, peaceful and a fabulous place to sit and reflect.

16 acres of lovingly cultivated grounds and greenhouses display a wide variety of features and environments. The formal planting centres around a restored Edwardian garden. Other planting includes an arboretum, a herb garden, woodland and herbaceous borders, rock Gardens, a water garden, special collections of Skimmia, Aubrieta, and hardy Fuchsia, and a series of glasshouses displaying temperate and tropical plants, alpines and succulents. This garden one of the most diverse in the region. It is the perfect place for a pleasant walk and there are benches for those who simply wish to relax and admire the surroundings. Variety is the key to this garden's strength.
Often you find somewhere that has free entry these days so that's a huge benefit to start. No formal car park normally plenty of space in the road outside. We got there early so parking was easy.
Depends what time of year you go but always a huge mix of trees, shrubs, and flowers to view. I normally take my camera as the variety of colours particularly with the fushias is fabulous. Check out the greenhouses too as they have some great flowering cactus.
Other bits worth seeing include a small water garden and sculptures. Takes about two hours to go around.

Winner of Leicestershire's "Best Visitor Attraction" A giant 8 acre maize maze with a fun quiz trail hidden amongst 3 miles of paths, with high level Bridges and viewing towers giving stunning panoramic views. Each year the Wistow Maze has a new design and theme. Includes an Activity Funyard full of mini mazes and games for all the family. Situated opposite is the Wistow Rural Centre with a cafe/bistro, garden centre, model village, art gallery and numerous shops. A great day out for all ages. Open July - September.
Great fun! We went on a Saturday but first thing so it was quite quiet and just getting busy as we were leaving! Took about an hour and a half, quite testing as far as mazes go, but that makes it fun! Can't wait to go back next year!
