If you are a resident in Leicester or someone planning to visit the city, there is no better way to know what’s happening, when it’s happening and where than to search it up.
Now that the sun is coming out even more in the UK and warmer days are ahead, you can start planning your next family day out using our recommended list of 3 sites you can visit and follow-on social media.
- Cool As Leicester
Cool As Leicester is one of the largest online magazines in Leicester. Also named ‘Your go to Leicester Guide’, the magazine provides insightful and entertaining articles on the latest news, events, entertainment, competitions and offers in the city.
You can click the food and drink section to find out which restaurants and bars are trending hot topics and the city favourites.
Better yet if you are jealous of the numerous people who have been going on holidays since the lockdown ended, then fly over to the travel section and start daydreaming about glamping with Alpacas.
With the perfect mix of Leicester pride and tourist content, it is an inclusive publication. Fit for everyone as it provides ideas of what you can do with your family, spouse and friends too. That is why it marks our number one Leicester media platform to visit and follow. You can check out their Instagram for quicker updates on all things Leicester @coolasleicester
- Day out with the kids (DOWTK)
For our families hunting for days out, this is the website you need. Featuring the most recommended places and activities to go out with your kids from the likes of theme parks, farms, and zoos in the UK. With over 7,500 activities to choose from in the UK, you can find local attractions in Leicester or outside of the city.
The site was originally created by Robert Templeman, a dad who in 2006 was tired of running out of family trip ideas and decided to form a platform where the ideas could never run dry. 15 years later DOWTK is known as the national favourite day’s out website.
If you find yourself becoming a fan of the website, they also offer a membership only zone where you can get exclusive discounts and offers on days out in the UK.
- Design My Night
If you enjoy Leicester’s bustling cultural nightlife, Design My Night is a great website that can help you discover new spots, plan and book an exciting night out in Leicester.
On the site, there is a range of events happening in the city with bars and restaurants to select from. You can even narrow your search by location, budget and the type of night experience you want to have. For example, you can choose a family meal, private party, or date night for those who want to get away from the kids.
After making your selections the site will recommend places and events most relevant to your search. It is like your own personal digital planner that feeds you with all the spots you need to know about. Not just in Leicester but across other cities in the UK.
