Market Harborough, Lutterworth and Harborough District Guided Walks

Discover more about this lovely area.

The towns, villages and countryside of South Leicestershire may not be a natural tourist destination, but you'll be amazed how much it has to offer for day trips and weekend stays. 

The Towns

Market Harborough

A lovely market town with an intriguing past. The guided walks shine a light onto its important place in our nation's history, not to mention the buildings and people who made it the town it is today.

Lutterworth 

Close to two ancient Roman roads, the town was a

busy coaching and market town. Lutterworth has its place in history due to two extraordinary men. But that is not the all that's fascinating about this bustling midland town.
