Leicester is at the heart of England with excellent transport links. It is just off the M1 and close to the main A1, with easy access to the north and south. The M69 and M6 are also close by and offer access to Birmingham, Wales and the south west. Leicester is just over an hour away from London St Pancras, and the Eurostar hub, meaning Paris is only four hours away by train. East Midlands Airport is 30 minutes away with regular flights to destinations across Europe.
