Top areas to live in Leicester

Whether you’re looking for a city centre location or somewhere with plenty of space for your family, Leicester has a good mix. Here are some of the best places to live in Leicester, and a little guide to what makes them great.


Just ten minutes out of Leicester, Oadby has the best of both worlds, with easy links to the city and access to pretty countryside to the south. With some of the best schools in the area, some of which are rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, Oadby is a natural pick for parents or anyone looking to start a family. However, you can expect to pay significantly more for properties here compared to other areas in Leicester – the average property price in Oadby is around £327,000.


Syston is home to a thriving high street, full of independent shops and cafes and a good line-up of pubs and places to eat. Syston makes a great commuter town, not just for Leicester – with soldi rail links to Loughborough, Nottingham and Lincoln, and the A46 and A607 nearby. You can expect to pay around the Leicester average, with house prices at around £226,000.


Three miles from Leicester, Glenfield is a charming village that’s home to the well-reviewed Glenfield hospital. There are some strong transport links, as the village has easy access to the M1. If you’re looking for a place to retire, Glenfield could be a good choice, as it has plenty of green spaces and larger properties, including bungalows. House prices are reasonable for Leicester, at an average of £238,000.

Clarendon Park

At the crossroads of Clarendon Park Road and Queen’s Road, you’ll find a bustling high street, with plenty of independent shops and cafes, creating a vibrant community hub. Properties are in high demand here, but you’re still looking at an average property price of £236,000.


Despite being just over a mile away from the city centre, Aylestone has retained a lot of its personality and charm.
