Aylestone is a nature-lovers dream. Walkers and cyclists can follow the scenic route along the Great Central Way, which follows the path of the former Great Central Railway – once one of the most important mainlines in Britain. The path winds through Aylestone Meadows nature reserve alongside the River Soar and the Grand Union Canal, which is a haven for beautiful scenery and wildlife. Indeed, during summer, a herd of traditional Leicestershire rare breed Longhorn cattle can be found grazing the rich grass fields near the medieval Packhorse Bridge, which dates from the 15th century.
Visitors can relax along the way at the Kings Lock Tearooms, housed in the last remaining lock-keeper’s cottage in Leicester. The building marks the place where the waterway changes from a river to a canal. The tearooms have seating overlooking the meadows, the canal, and the River Soar.
The proximity of the River Soar and the Grand Union canal to the village makes it the perfect place for fishing and boating. Tennis courts can be found in the grounds of Aylestone Hall Gardens and at Aylestone Playing Fields, and the meadows has two children’s play areas. The beautiful scenery in Aylestone makes it the perfect location for picnics; pick up supplies from the small shopping area can in the village along Aylestone Road, near the junction with Wigston Lane.
History lovers will want to visit St Andrew’s church, which was first built nearly 800 years ago. The interior is full of fascinating historical features – there are two stunning stained glass windows as well as a Parish chest complete with three locks; the chest could only be opened if all three key-holders were present. You can also head over to Aylestone Hall and Gardens. The Hall is a Grade II listed historic building, the earliest parts of which date to 1339. The surrounding gardens are open to the public and are the perfect spot to relax with a picnic. King Charles I is thought to have sheltered in the hall before the siege of Leicester in 1645.
