Leicester is an ancient city with a modern attitude and a wealth of attractions. Its most iconic symbol is Leicester Cathedral, which is 900 years old and holds the reinterred remains of Richard III. The city castle is also a superb spot for history and fantastic views thanks to the River Soar that flows right alongside. Other key attractions include the National Space Centre and the award-winning CONKERS experience for all the family at the New Forest and Twycross Zoo, which has over 500 species in 80 acres of parkland. The city centre is also home to a lively student community, excellent shops and an award-winning dining scene, with some superb American restaurants in Leicester to discover and experience. Go hungry and prepare to enjoy a huge feast because when you dine at Leicester's American restaurants you will be in for a real treat with exciting flavours, hearty portions and superb service all adding to the experience.
Boo Burgers in the centre is a wonderful, high quality eatery with expert chefs, a tantalising menu and halal meat used in all of their dishes. The wings, ribs, burgers and steaks are cooked to perfection and the homemade fries are legendary with the locals. Check out the luxurious ice-cream milkshakes too which are just as decadent as any dessert! Cured is another top-quality dining venue which celebrates the diversity of American cuisine in all its glory. Try beer-battered fried pickles (known as frickles to some), mac 'n' cheese balls, buttermilk chicken and the overflowing tasting platters packed with home-cured meats and paired with Brewdog beers. The Brisket and Onion Reuben is a particularly hot favourite if you are popping in for a lunchtime sandwich, just be sure to book in advance to reserve your table.
