Prior to WW2, Leicestershire was packed with remnants of the industrial revolution. The county was heavily hit during bombing raids of the war which led to many changes in the nature of Leicestershire’s towns. Now Leicester is a bustling multicultural county capital.
The county of Leicestershire is hugely diverse. Bradgate Park , between Newton Linford and Cropston is like walking in the footsteps of Lady Jane Grey. An attraction distinctly different is the popular Conkers. Also popular for visitors to Leicestershire is Twycross Zoo, a specialist primate zoo with UK’s only bonobos!
