The 13 best things to do in Leicester

For a long time, no one really cared much about the best things to do in Leicester. The East Midlands city, once known only as the birthplace of Walkers Crisps, flew very much under the cultural radar until the 2010s. Now, with the discovery of Richard III in the city in 2012 and the legendary 2016 Premier League win, the English city is on the map—and with a cultural regeneration including new bars, a renovated city centre, and tons of great places to go, it’s a legitimate destination. Here are the best places to check out if you’re heading to the area. Done something on this list and loved it? Share it with the hashtag #TimeOutDoList and tag @TimeOutEverywhere.
