New Homes in the East Midlands

Welcome to the East Midlands
Whether you’re exploring national parks, enjoying some retail therapy or cheering on your favourite sports team, there’s something for everyone close to your new home in the East Midlands. Encompassing towns and cities including Nottingham, Leicester, Northampton and Lincoln, the East Midlands is certainly a diverse and exciting place to live. 
A quick history
The East Midlands has a fascinating history, from the Romans at Leicester to royal hunting at Rockingham Forest. Lea Bridge is home to the world’s first factory, today a UNESCO World Heritage Site, while castles in the region can be found at Ashby de la Zouch, Peveril and Bolsover.
Over the centuries, the East Midlands has been home to Sir Isaac Newton, D.H. Lawrence, and the folk character Robin Hood, who was said to steal from the rich to give to the poor in Sherwood Forest.
Business and industry
The East Midlands is home to a number of major employers including Boots and Pendragon in Nottingham, Travis Perkins in Northampton, Rolls Royce in Derby, JCB near Foston, Booker Group in Wellingborough and Next in Leicester. Other businesses headquartered in the area include fashion label Paul Smith, retailer Wilko, snack brand Walkers crisps, and technology firm Belkin UK. The region is also well connected by road and rail to Birmingham and Manchester, ideal if you’re commuting.
Things to do in the area
If you’re moving to the East Midlands with children, there’s lots to keep them entertained in the local area, from trips to Twycross Zoo, to days out at the National Space Centre, Wicksteed Park, Mini Meadows Farm and Lincolnshire Wildlife Park.
For an afternoon in the great outdoors, you can explore the coast at Anderby Creek, go hiking in the Peak District National Park, or cycle through Sherwood Forest. The Lincolnshire Wolds, Charnwood Forest and Rockingham Forest are also popular.
If you’re a sports fan, there’s lots to keep you entertained in the region, from racing at Silverstone and Donington Park to football at Leicester City’s home ground the King Power Stadium and Welford Road Stadium, home of the Leicester Tigers. Trent Bridge cricket ground in Nottingham is home to Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club. 
Historic sites in the East Midlands include Nottingham Castle, Chatsworth House, Belvoir Castle and Lincoln Castle, while local museums include the Galleries of Justice in Nottingham, the Peak District Lead Mining Museum in Matlock and Harrington Aviation Museum.

If you’re travelling from one side of the East Midlands to the other, the journey from Lincoln to Northampton takes around two hours by car.
