Since 1849, Leicester Museums and Galleries have been welcoming the public into our museum venues for free. We are a National Portfolio Organisation supported using public funding by Arts Council England. Visit the Leicester Museums website to discover the range of museums, heritage venues, galleries, exhibitions and events.
Leicester is a vibrant, multicultural and wonderful place to visit and live, offering an exciting array of arts activities across a host of venues and local sites.
We organise and support a wide variety of culturally diverse events all year across Leicester. These include the St. George's Festival, the Caribbean Carnival and Diwali.
Active Leicester encompasses all sports in the city. We have seven leisure centres with swimming pools and gyms; My Active Leicester digital platform, one climbing wall; one athletics track; one golf facility and several dedicated football pitches.
Our parks are geared up to help you get healthy. We have 130 parks in Leicester all offering something different for everyone.
