This is Leicester's guildhall dating back to the 16th century. Such Guildhalls were used to entertain and some the legal needs of the town. The well preserved building is timber framed with white plaster walls with many high several gables. Its overall size and excellent condition make it an essential visit with the Cathedral and the Richard 3rd centre across the road. Today the Guildhall hosts concert and ghost story chats! Entrance is free and allow an hour minimum. One of the best buildings.

Belgrave Hall is now a 'Heritage Venue', only open on Wednesdays & the first full weekends of each month April to September. The gardens are gorgeous, the house is now available for weddings, and they have a marquee for receptions. The staff when I went were most helpful and nothing was too much trouble, though that was back in 2016. The only downside is the lack of parking on normal opening days. They have also held the Acoustic Gardens Music festival in August for three years.

The clock tower is a central point in Leicester city centre. For people who live in Leicester, it has been the most popular meeting place for local people for many years. Meeting friends, young couples, visitors to the city, it's at the heart of the town. Usually speakers stand underneath the clock tower airing their views, many continental markets assemble around it too. It has so much history and the detail can be seen around the tower, which has been restored in recent years. A must visit!
