Leicester was never on my bucket list. It didn’t sound as awesome as London or as mythical as Stonehenge. And yet, my boyfriend could convince me to spend a holiday in the English city. Sure, he wanted to see the soccer game but me? I wasn’t sure there would be anything interesting there… Luckily I was mistaken.
Leicester has the stores (shopping time!), small streets and historical vibes I’m looking for in a short getaway. And at Christmas time? A giant tree and magical fairy lights can’t lack.
