The area is home to a number of other fine museums including the Kegworth Museum, housed about six miles outside of town in a restored 19th-century barn. The museum contains memorabilia from the Royal British Legion and the knitting industry as well as Victorian parlour and saddler displays. Also a short drive from Loughborough, the 19th-century Moira Furnace Museum is the best preserved of its kind in Europe. Built-in 1804 by the Earl of Moira, the museum features lime kilns; a casting shed, engine house and memorabilia. In town, the recently restored Rectory, dating back to the early 13th century, is one of the oldest in the country.
Being a university town should come as no surprise to find that Loughborough comes alive at night with students and locals filling the numerous restaurants, cafés and more than 60 traditional pubs, most of which are full of atmosphere, charm and most importantly, good beer.
For outdoor enthusiasts, Bradgate Park, with over 850 acres of bracken covered hills, moorland, ancient oak trees and outcroppings of slate and granite, is a great area to hike, climb or picnic, Noted for its herds of red and fallow deer, the park is centred on the 15th-century house where Lady Jane Grey, Queen of England for nine days, lived for most of her life.
The diversity of architecture in the neighbouring villages around Loughborough is quite a treat, with Wymeswold’s Georgian homes and Seagrave’s stone and slate cottages being fine examples, while numerous other distinctive, centuries-old churches and bridges can be seen. All this and more is waiting to be discovered when you arrange Loughborough Minibus hire.
