Like most Midlands cities, Leicester’s spot at the heart of the UK’s travel network means it’s impeccably connected.
East Midlands Airport is Leicester’s local gateway to the skies. Transfers are nice and simple with a choice of express bus and train services from the airport, both taking around an hour. We’d recommend the train if you’re staying at Premier Inn Leicester City Centre as we’re just a three-minute walk from Leicester railway station.
A taxi from the airport to Leicester will cut your journey time in half. Or you could cut your journey out all together by staying at one of our hotels near East Midlands Airport.
Birmingham International Airport is slightly further afield but excellent rail links mean Leicester is just an hour and 20 minutes away by train. London Heathrow is also surprisingly close, with the Heathrow Express and East Midlands Trains from Paddington making the journey just over two hours on most services. Wherever you’re travelling from we have accommodation for you, with hotels near London Heathrow and Birmingham International.
Leicester’s twin bus stations offer a range of options for travellers, both locally and for anyone heading further afield. Haymarket Bus Station serves the Haymarket shopping centre and was reopened in 2015 after a £13.5 million revamp. Regional and national coaches set off from the larger St. Margaret’s Bus Station on Gravel Street. The city also has a handy Park & Ride scheme, which runs every 15 minutes from 7am to 7pm, Monday to Saturday. There are three separate Park & Ride hubs on major routes into the city, with 1,500 parking spaces.
Leicester Railway Station is located just two minutes from Premier Inn Leicester City Centre and is only four miles from our Leicester Fosse Park hotel. Fancy using Leicester as a base for some sightseeing? Trains to London leave every 20 minutes and take just over an hour to reach the capital.
There are no fewer than seven Leicester hotels to suit your needs when planning a visit - so you can choose whatever's best for you, whether you're indulging in some retail therapy or treating yourself to a night out.
