Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Leicestershire

Leicestershire is a region in the Midlands of England. Considered the birthplace of the famous fox hunt, it is a very diverse and historically rich county. Consisting of villages, cities and farms sprawling across the two thousand square kilometers of countryside, Leicestershire is a beautiful place to visit.

If you plan to travel to Leicestershire for a few days, accommodation is available nearly everywhere. You can choose between apartments in the city, farms and cottages in the villages and countryside, and hostels in and around all the major attractions of the area. Great deals on hostels in Leicestershire can be found nearly every day.

While staying at these hostels, exploring the countryside is necessary because of all there is to see and do in the area. You could visit the Battle of Bosworth center. This was a historic battle that took the life of Richard III, King of England. There are also beautiful castles and homes to visit, with architecture dating back to the Victorian era.

The River Soar flows through the county, which is home to the Foxton Locks, built in Victorian England. You can hire a little boat and explore the waterways of Leicestershire. If you want another taste of adventure, you can visit the lock-up in Coalville. This was a little house where village criminals were literally “locked up”!

After returning to your hostel to rest and recover, you can go out for a meal to one of the many local restaurants and eateries. There are teashops and cafés galore, along with restaurants staffed by some award-winning chefs and teams. You can also taste some local brews down at the many pubs and bars scattered around the countryside.

For the more risk taking among you, there is the option of sipping on a cup of English tea or eating a meal at the Twycross Zoo, where you can watch the snow leopards play while you go about your day.

Work off your meal by going for a horse ride all the way back to your hostel, where you can wrap up your evening with supper provided by some of the friendliest hosts you will ever have the pleasure of meeting.

With a rich music and theater scene along with an immersive culture, incredible food and great people, the fun won’t stop as long as you don’t let it!
