Bus Travel in Leicester

Explore this melting pot of culture, history and the modern world

The city of Leicester is a true melting pot of culture, history and the modern world. With two universities, it lies on the River Soar, close to the National Forest. See everything from Egyptian artefacts to Picasso ceramics in the city’s galleries or head to The National Space Centre for an out-of-this-world experience. Love the arts? Check out De Montfort Hall and the Y Theatre. The annual Handmade Festival and Riverside Festival are perfect for live music fans. You’ll also be spoilt for choice when it comes to shopping, eating and drinking. Whether you’re looking for an independent place or a high-street chain, you’re sure to find it in Leicester.

We offer over 20 bus routes connecting Leicester with Rugby, Melton Mowbray, Nuneaton and many more destinations.
