Things to see and do

The picturesque setting of Ashby de la Zouch offers you plenty of opportunity to get out and about in the fresh air.

The National Forest covers 200 square miles across Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire, filled with beautiful landscapes to walk, cycle and picnic in. Whether exploring by foot or on the saddle, lovely views surrounded by wildlife can be enjoyed here.

The area also offers many great options for family days out. The award-winning attraction, Conkers, can be found in the Forest of Moira and features an adventure playground, obstacle courses, barefoot walks and treetop challenges.

A highlight for motoring enthusiasts is the world-famous Donington Park. Regular race days take place here along with formula-e testing, and some of the most iconic cars in history can be seen at the Donington Grand Prix Collection. Four halls showcase over 130 exhibits and tell the story of motorsports from the beginning of the 20th century.

North West Leicestershire also offers a wide selection of shops. Independent boutiques and stores can be found in Ashby de la Zouch, Castle Donington and Ibstock for that one off buy, while several arts and craft centres in the area offer you the opportunity to spend an afternoon viewing  the work of local artists.

An important landmark between the 15th and 17th century, highlights include the spooky walk through its underground passage between the tower and kitchen, and a climb to the top of the tower. 

Eerie Calke Abbey is another historical highlight within easy reach, showing the decline of a once grand country house estate. Further points of interest include Grace Dieu Priory and Donington le Heath Manor House.
