Hot Air Balloon Rides From Leicestershire
Leicester is one of the oldest cities in the UK with a history of settlement stretching back at least 2000 years, though it only "officially" received city status in 1919. Leicester is well known as an important Roman settlement and evidence of this can be seen in many places across the City including Castle Park and the Guildhall.
Leicestershire was recorded in the Domesday Book and its boundaries have little changed since then. The county boasts many spendid stately homes including, Stanford Hall, Belvoir Castle and Calke Abbey. The county is also home to Foxton Locks, a remarkable piece of Victorian engineering, comprising a flight of ten locks.
To the West of Leicestershire is one of the Midlands permier historical sites, the battlefield of Bosworth which witnessed the death of a King and the end of a thirty year power struggle for the Throne of England. Not far away, near the intersection of the M69 and the M1 is the village of Huncote where Wickers World can provide would be balloonists with balloon rides for the Leicester area.
