Hire a car in Leicester

Leicester is a historic and multicultural city on the rise.

Over a third of its population is Asian and more than one hundred languages spoken are spoken on its streets. So perhaps unsurprisingly, it has been tapped on the shoulder to become Britain’s first “plural city” – where no ethnic group is the majority.

The city’s Roman heritage, royal remains and champion football club, provide a variety of tourist attractions as well. Leicester's two universities mean that youthful vibes keep the city wide awake into the night and an influx of new ideas are propelling the city forward.
