Travelling around Ashby-de-la-Zouch
A romantic ruinous castle, a busy market high street and a Hula Hoops factory are just a few of the attractions on offer in Leicestershire’s Ashby-de-la-Zouch. This pretty market town may be known for being one of the furthest towns from the sea, but with the National Forest on its doorstep and easy connections to Burton-Upon-Trent, Leicester and Birmingham, it’s well worth a visit.
Named after the La Zouch family, Ashby-de-la-Zouch has a wonderful castle, plenty of open parkland and even an alpaca farm, making it the perfect place to visit if you live nearby and love the great outdoors.
Located on the M42, getting to cities such as Leicester is simple and Arriva buses operate regular bus services to take residents and visitors all around the Leicestershire region.
