Leicester is an exciting, vibrant city with loads of restaurants, great bars, clubs and music venues, and award-winning visitor attractions – and let’s not forget the huge range of boutiques, shops and department stores for that much-needed retail-therapy. BMC’s Leicester-based accommodation gives you the opportunity to experience this fantastic city for yourself.

Fancy a Night Out?

Why not head out to one of Leicester’s many bars and clubs for a well-deserved night out?
For a budget-friendly evening with a thriving atmosphere, try Club Republic or the Fan Club.

If you’re looking for somewhere with a more alternative vibe, head to MOSH, the go-to club for lovers of indie, rock and alternative music.

For those who enjoy a refined atmosphere, bespoke cocktails and a good dance (all for a student-budget-friendly price), Club XY is perfect.

Club Helsinki is one of the most popular gay clubs in Leicester, and is a must if you’re a fan of house, dance and hip hop. They also offer great drinks deals and frequently hosts live gigs.

Food, Glorious Food!

Leicester is home to a wide range of chain restaurants, many of which provide student discounts, as well as lots of independent dining establishments so you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Entertainment

Leicester City Centre is home to the Leicester O2 Academy and a series of more intimate music venues such as Lock 42, The Shed, and the Musician.

If you prefer theatre, musicals, comedy shows, live bands or classical music check out De Montfort Hall or the Curve Theatre.

Film lovers have lots to choose from, including Phoenix independent cinema, an Odeon cinema, and a huge Showcase cinema with XPLUS screen. Piccadilly Bollywood cinema is only a 15-minute train ride from Leicester.

With the Leicester Tigers and Leicester City FC grounds within walking distance of the City centre, Leicester is the perfect place for die-hard rugby and football fans. Or, for those who love basketball, speedway or cricket, Leicester is home to Leicester Riders, Leicester Warriors, Leicester Lions, and Leicestershire County Cricket Club. It even has its own American football team, the Leicester Falcons.

National Exclusives
