Where should I buy in Leicester?

With a population of more than 350,000, Leicester has great schools, shopping centres, theatres, entertainment venues, and green spaces on its doorstep — without a hefty price tag. 

There are countless jobs in Leicestershire itself, making it ideal for those who favour a short commute. If you’re happy to travel for work, you can get to Nottingham, Coventry and Birmingham in less than an hour by car. 

Alternatively, you could get the train to London in just over an hour! So if you work in the capital but you can’t afford to buy a house there, Leicester could hold the key to your first home.

Clarendon Park

Overflowing with trendy bars, indie restaurants, and green spaces, Leicester’s Clarendon Park has become a popular place among young professionals, students, and families alike.

It’s unsurprising when you look at its location — just a stone’s throw away from the University of Leicester, Victoria Park and live entertainment venue De Montfort Hall. 

If you love a period property with high ceilings and original fireplaces, there’s no shortage of Victorian terraces in the area.

The neighbourhood has changed in recent years due to a growing popularity with students, but it remains friendly, lively and has a community spirit.
