Major Cities

The largest city in the East Midlands and one of the ten most populous in England, Leicester is a scenic city located on the River Soar. It is one of the oldest cities in England, having been settled in the second century BCE. Popular sights in Leicester include Leicester Castle, where Richard III spent much time in the final years of his life. His remains can be found in the middle of town at Leicester Cathedral, a stately Gothic cathedral dating from the year 1086. North of town you can find the National Space Centre, one of the largest space science museums in Britain.

Nottingham, situated east of the River Leen and north of the River Trent, is the second-largest city in the East Midlands. It is well-known for its lace industry, and at one time Nottingham was considered `the lace capital of the world`. Nottingham Castle, built on the orders of William the Conqueror just two years after the Norman invasion of England, served as the Royal residence of King Edward III, and later King Henry IV`s wife, Queen Joan. North of town, the 1,000-acre Sherwood Forest is forever associated with the legend of Robin Hood and his Merry Men.

WHY THE EAST MIDLANDS?

The area of England known as the East Midlands was fully settled by the time of the Romans. The Roman Fosse Way began in what is now the East Midlands and signifies the western frontier of the Roman Empire. During the Viking conquest of Britain, it was part of an area called The Five Boroughs of the Danelaw. The two major cities in the region have their own storied histories: Nottingham, which has functioned as a market town since the tenth century, is best-known for the historic legend of Robin Hood and his Merry Men; and Leicester, 22 miles almost directly to Nottingham`s south, is perhaps one of the oldest cities in Britain, dating back to the second century before the Common Era.
