Retail and leisure are major parts of the Leicester economy. The city is especially well-known for its cuisine and the restaurants of the so-called ‘Golden Mile’ along the Belgrave Road just north of central Leicester.

Retail and leisure sites are often found together in Leicester. Modern sites like those at Fosse Shopping Park on the outer ring-road and Meridian Leisure Park just off the M1 combine big showroom type units with gyms, restaurants, bowling alleys and other entertainment venues. St George’s Retail Park is another modern site that provides large-scale retail or leisure space.
Within the city centre the Haymarket and Highcross Shopping Centres are the main retail and leisure sites. Café, coffee shops, bars, and shops are combined and see annual footfall in the millions. Units often become available and can be used as newsagents, convenience stalls, independent boutiques, or salons depending on your business.
A high-performing commercial sector and large student population mean lots of demand for retail and leisure opportunities in Leicester. Having the right location and premises gives your business the chance to maximise the chances of success.
