Legal Leicester Walking Tour - Greyfriars Townscape Heritage Initiative

Look out for free walking tours of the area during the annual Heritage Open Days fortnight as well as other heritage walks in the city centre organised by local heritage groups.

A bespoke walking tour of Legal Leicester is below, along with links to heritage walks in the area that were created as part of the Leicester Greyfriars THI project.

Legal Leicester Walking Tour - Greyfriars Townscape Heritage Initiative

Will Sanders produced this illustrated map of the Greyfriars Conservation Area to bring to life the area’s legacy as the legal district of the city.

Students from the University of Leicester helped collect historic material and key figures from the legal community generously gave their time to help provide information that provided the inspiration for the walking tour map which you see here.
