Welcome to Melton Mowbray

Melton Mowbray, situated in North-East Leicestershire, is in the midst of classic English country-side. It is has some beautiful country villages and the best pub food you could want.

This pretty town towards the north east of Leicester is a great place for any visitor to Leicestershire to simply "have a wander" and a day out. The Norman-built St Mary's Church is said by locals to be the stateliest in the county - and they will all tell you that they're not being biased! There is also the Anne of Cleaves, now a pub, which was part of her divorce settlement from Henry VIII - although there is local debate about whether she ever stayed there or not.

Melton is in a mainly agricultural area and for anyone interested in farming, there is a livestock market on Tuesdays and a fruit and veg market on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. But there is no doubt that what the town is most famous for - its delicious pork pies...which can still be sampled by visitors at Ye Olde Porke Pie Shoppe!

Where is Melton Mowbray and how do I get there? About 15 miles north east of Leicester on the A607. There are bus services to Leicester, and rail links to Leicester, Stamford, and Peterborough.
