Guided Walk : Leicester's Cathedral quarter

Leicester's Cathedral quarter

“Having retraced a series of plaques in the city centre, marked for the 1984 LRSA Trail, which had until that point been a complete mystery to us! Some serious investigation later and we have uncovered a map of the 1984 trail highlighting the most important public spaces and vistas in the city.”

Local architects David Hickman and Adam Smith of Hickman & Smith will take the lead of this tour, focusing on areas, buildings and views at the established LRSA Trail stations around the Cathedral Quarter.
Join our architects and see this part of the city in a whole new light!
