What we have in West Leicester
This is a great area to live in for anyone who loves a fun and vibrant atmosphere with all the shopping and socialising there is to do (especially if you find somewhere closer to the city centre).
The Narborough Road/ Braunstone Gate area is especially popular with students and the younger generations who want to make the most of all there is – whether it’s clubbing, watching sporting matches or cycling along the canal path.
Heading further out into the county on the west side, you’ll find yourself getting more towards the towns such as Hinckley, which has a community of its very own.
When you’re on the hunt for houses for sale in Hinckley, make sure that, as well as taking in the town, you have a look around the lovely villages, such as Sapcote and Burbage too.
What we have in North Leicester
When you move more towards the north of Leicester, you’ll discover towns such as the main one – Loughborough – as well as Ashby de la Zouch, Coalville and Coleorton.
Many of the towns in the north of Leicester are steeped in history (check out the Great Central Railway, for example) and they make for some great areas in which to raise a family.
When it comes to houses for sale Loughborough has a lovely selection of properties which would make perfect homes for families of all sizes. And it is also perfect for commuting to other cities of the East Midlands, such as Nottingham or Derby.
What we have in South Leicester
The great thing about south/east Leicester has to be some of the lovely villages and parks there are to enjoy.
The countryside around here is absolutely stunning and you also get the benefit of the many golf courses and sports clubs that there are, not to mention the excitement of the Leicester Racecourse and easy access to Fosse Park for a spot of shopping.
People who live in south/east Leicester also have the easiest access to the coast, when they’re looking to get away to the seaside for the day. And the A-roads which will get you there offer a truly picturesque journey.
Some of the main towns south of Leicester include Oadby and Wigston – popular with students and families alike, thanks to the great educational facilities that are about.
