Newarke Houses Museum
St Mary de Castro
A lava lounge for the student crowd, with a great selection of beers on tap, as well as theme nights, stage shows and gigs.
Craving a triple-decker chilli burger or an Oreo-cookie-and-peanut-butter milkshake? This being Leicester, Tinseltown's effect is more...
Lonely Planet review
Sprawling over two 16th-century mansions, this entertaining museum has exhibits detailing the lifestyles of local people through the centuries. Don't miss the walk-through re-creation of a WWI trench, and the trophies of the Royal Leicestershire Regiment, including an outrageous snuff box made from a tiger's head.
