Plan a Great Day Out

If you're looking for things to do in Leicestershire, less than five miles away to the west of Leicester is Kirby Muxloe Castle. Here you can explore the picturesque moated remains, fine gatehouse and complete corner tower of this largely brick-built fortified mansion. Why not  take a picnic to enjoy in its grounds?

Another 15 miles away to the northwest is Ashby de la Zouch Castle. Now a ruin, this began life as a manor house in the 12th century and achieved castle status by the 15th century. You can walk through an underground passage, probably dating from the Civil War, and take in the fine views from the top of the tower.
