Living in Leicester
02 /A breath of fresh air
One of the great things about living in Leicester is the amount of greenery, even though you're in a city.
- Victoria Park
Right next door to the main University campus, Vicky Park is a great place for a walk, run or even just chilling out with friends.
- Abbey Park
Near to the city centre, Abbey Park features the remains of Leicester Abbey and is known for hosting a spectacular bonfire and fireworks display for bonfire night.
- Bradgate Park
If you fancy venturing further afield, Bradgate Park is another popular destination where you are sure to spot a few deer.
Other outdoor spaces worth visiting include Rutland Water and Knighton Park. Don't forget that if you live in the Oadby Student Village you also have the Botanical Gardens right on your doorstep!
