Leicester And Her Surroundings
LEICESTERs a city of vibrant colours, cultures and flavours, with Indian, Mexican. Chinese, Italian, English and much, much more.
There is also more to Leicester than meets the eye, for example, the beautiful countryside ( See my Bradgate Park page ) fantastic Mosques, historic buildings and history that goes with it, and its national attractions such as the National Space Centre, and Leicester's very own ' Golden Mile ' which is a street lined from top to toe with jewellers dealing Asian jewellery. This is a must see for any visitor to Leicester
"Leicester Botanic Gardens"
Leicester Botanic Gardens are situated on Leicester's University , and are a world away from the drunken students.
There are tree's, shrubs, plants of all varities from all over the world in here and they have made a little piece of heaven in the middle of Leicester.
"Flower Garden leading to Water Area"
Another part of the Botanic Gardens, you will need a good half or perhaps a day to take in everything here. This leads onto a long and narrow pond, with lillies, dragonflies ( very pretty blue&green ones to ! ) fish and more.
