Lying between Nottinghamshire to the north, and Northamptonshire to the south, Leicestershire is an attractive county, with gentle rolling countryside, interesting towns and villages, and steeped in history. Its traditional industries relate to textiles, engineering, farming and food – particularly Stilton cheese, and Melton Mowbray pork pies.
