A Tour of some Churches in Leicester on Saturday 14th July 2018

Leicester has a number of interesting churches in the city centre and outer suburbs. We plan a relaxed walking tour of some churches in the centre in the morning and after lunch a coach tour in the outer suburbs. In the City centre we plan to see St Andrew’s, Jarrom Street, St Mary-de-Castro and St Nicholas.

The plan is that we travel to Leicester independently and meet at Leicester Train Station at 10:30 and walk to St Andrew’s, Jarrom Street for a welcoming tea/coffee. It is about 20 minutes walk from the station. From there we leave for the short walk (10 minutes) to St Mary-de-Castro. At 12:00 we walk to the nearby St Nicholas.

At 1:45 p.m. we meet at the cathedral (precise location of pick-up to be given) to board the coach, departing at 2:00 p.m. at the latest, for St James the Greater. From there we need to board the coach at 2:35 p.m. to travel out of town to St Hugh’s, Eyres Monsell and then on to St Thomas’s, South Wigston where we have tea. The intention is to leave there at 4:45 p.m. for the return journey to Leicester Railway Station where we plan to arrive by about 5:30 p.m.

Drinks will be provided at St Nicholas’. You may eat your own packed lunch if you wish or choose to cross the road to the Square, to sit in the fresh air. There are many eating places just beyond, close to the Cathedral. You might decide to use some of the time to see the Tomb of King Richard III. There is a Cathedral Refectory but it is rather small, Saturday is a busy day and if many of us go in then a table may be hard to find and the service could be slow. We are on a tight schedule.

The timings may be subject to some revision, depending upon circumstances on the day: there is traffic and some narrow streets. However, all the venues are interesting, worth visiting and the programme is varied. The cost per person is £30.00.
