You can enjoy spectacular, surround-sound planetarium shows at the National Space Centre, less than three miles from the hotel. Try out interactive exhibits like the 3D space flight simulator, and look out for the huge Blue Streak rocket, real moon rock samples and spacesuits worn on actual missions. Check their website for special events such as astronaut talks and regular themed exhibitions.
Book tickets for a top-class football match at Leicester City's King Power Stadium, where you can experience the lively atmosphere and enjoy a pie and a pint before the game. You can relax in the hotel beforehand, knowing you're just a few minutes stroll from your seat. If rugby is more your style, Leicester Tigers' Welford Road Stadium is also less than a mile from the hotel, an easy walk away.

Don't Go Home Without
The King Richard III Visitor Centre, five minutes' drive from the hotel, sits on the spot where the 15th-century king's remains were found in 2012, and now houses a museum about his life. Visit to see a replica skeleton with the king's war wounds, find out what happened at the deadly Battle of Bosworth, and learn how the king's burial site was eventually discovered under a city car park.
You can work off some energy with an invigorating run or a leisurely walk along the canal that runs behind the hotel. Follow the path down to the nature reserve at Aylestone Meadows. For more fresh air, Victoria Park is only six minutes' drive away, where you can play tennis or take advantage of the leafy cycle paths. Kids can run amok with a choice of two playgrounds, and there's a café too.
