Leicestershire is the home of the famous Melton Mobray pork pie; the rich veined blue cheese of Stilton and the subtle taste of Red Leicester cheese. It is also home to the Battle of Bosworth, which ended the reign of the Plantagenets, fought between the two noble houses of Lancaster and York. The story of this famous event is captured at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre and Country Park. The castles of Ashby, Rockingham and that of Belvoir and the many museums as well as religious sites such as St Martin’s Cathedral and Leicester Abbey fittingly recall the historical contributions of this county in the very centre of England.
