A Guide to Renting in Leicester - Queen Street Quarter

A Guide to Renting in Leicester

Recently shortlisted for the UK City of Culture 2017, Leicester’s central location and excellent transport links makes renting in Leicester an obvious choice for the young professional. A £500 million economic regeneration that began in 2007 has transformed derelict landscapes and previously unused areas of the city; creating thriving hot spots such as Highcross Leicester, and developing the aptly named ‘Cultural Quarter’.

Highcross Leicester is an exciting hub of activity; offering a vibrant destination which incorporates an unrivalled choice of over 120 popular fashion retailers, a cinema and a delightfully diverse range of restaurants, bars and eateries. Just a short walk away, the Cultural Quarter has a similar atmosphere and has converted the St. Georges area of Leicester from the City’s centre for textile production into a flourishing area for creative industries, artists, designers and crafts people which boasts award winning restaurants, cocktail bars and music venue The Soundhouse. It’s the ideal place if you’re considering renting in Leicester. At the heart of the Quarter is the ultra-modern Curve Theatre, and Phoenix Square, a state of the art digital arts centre.

Sports fans are ideally situated, just a short walk from both Welford Road, home to internationally renowned rugby union side Leicester Tigers, and The Walkers Stadium, the home ground for Leicester City FC. Socially, Leicester is the chosen venue for many festivals and celebrations, all year round. From The Comedy Festival in February, to November’s spectacular Diwali Celebrations, there is always sure to be something going on.

In 2011 Leicester became host to the National Space Centre and if we travel a little further out of the city, many other local sites include Warwick Castle, the picturesque Bradgate Country Park and Belvoir Castle – all top tourist locations enjoyed by residents and tourists alike.
