Leicester is one of the most diverse cities in the UK. Approximately 50% of the population of Leicester comes from diverse ethnic and cultural communities.

Leicester is also a city of remarkable history. In 2012, the remains of King Richard III were discovered buried near De Montfort University and were re-buried in 2015 in Leicester Cathedral, again just a few hundred yards from De Montfort University.

Much of Leicester’s history and architecture – including buildings from Roman times – have been surprisingly well preserved: “Unlike almost every other city in the UK, Leicester has retained a remarkable record of its past in buildings that still stand today.”
