Easter Holiday Stays at The Gresham

With not long to go until the Easter holidays, we’ve rounded up some of the great things to do with the kids that are within walking distance of The Gresham Aparthotel.

Leicester is the ideal location for a family city break. Located in the centre of the UK, it’s not too far from most major cities and the transport links are excellent. We’re just a 10 minute walk from the train station so why not leave the car at home and have a completely car free break?

The aparthotel is well equipped for family breaks. Our two-bed apartments offer an ideal flexible space when traveling with children. All of our apartments include their own kitchenette facilities giving you the flexibility to save money by eating in when you choose. If you decide on a meal out, our on site restaurant, Black Iron Social offers a delicious selection of meals to choose from and, being city centre based, you’ll also be spoilt for choice with a range of other independent and chain restaurants on your doorstep.

When bedtime comes, you can tuck the children in, close the door, pour a glass of wine from the fridge and sit back in your own separate living space. Bliss!

All of the activities below are within walking distance but you’ll also find a whole host of additional fun family activities at attractions across the wider Leicestershire area:
