Celebrate Christmas in the city

Updated: Sep 12, 2023

2023 is going by quickly and Christmas is the ideal time to reflect, rejoice, celebrate and feel special.

Cities at Christmas become magical places and Leicester is no exception. The traditions take centre stage such as the stunning Christmas tree located next to the iconic clock tower, the big-wheel alongside the ice-rink and elegant lights twinkling throughout the city centre streets. Venues truly come to life with soirees, laughter, delectable food and fun.

Securing that ideal and unique gift is also made even easier in Leicester as it is home to big-name and high-street stores, amazing independent boutiques and one of Europe’s largest covered markets.

Local attractions such as The Guildhall, The Athena and Jubilee Square host special Christmas experiences and memorable family events. Plus, Curve is the home of diverse, exciting, and inspiring theatre including incredible Christmas productions.

With an array of choice, it is no wonder businesses choose to book their celebratory Christmas team outing in the city. And the award-winning Gresham Aparthotel makes the perfect base to stay at. Nestled conveniently (on a traffic-free street) in the heart of Leicester with well-known and independent cafes, boutiques, restaurants, and famous sporting grounds conveniently close by.

Adored by guests - including several VIPs - the unique boutique apartments at The Gresham are clean, large, and aesthetically pleasing. The spacious set up makes getting ready to go out feel super stylish. With features such as kitchenettes (to keep the bottle of fizz cool) and complimentary toiletries, a hair dryer, and fresh towels the little touches help make guests feel great.

The two sky rooms provide a jaw dropping skyline view of the city. And at the end of the day or night - no long taxi ride is required - and a very good night's sleep awaits.

Mark Hills, General Manager explains: “The Gresham always fits people’s plans perfectly. Our facilities allow guests complete freedom and flexibility. We know they like that the rooms feel like home, only better.

“When we speak to many of our guests, we find out they are here to attend a special occasion such as a wedding, graduation ceremony, a sports match, or a show. The location is unbeatable so guests can easily get to where they need to be hassle-free.

“The team and I are dedicated to making sure people have the best stay possible to complement their visit to Leicester. We like to think that we set the standard for living well away from home.

“For any businesses coming into the city to celebrate this Christmas please feel free to get in touch to see if we can accommodate your overnight requirements and help make your Christmas celebration sparkle even more. We recommend booking sooner rather than later, especially if there is a specific date in mind.”
