Leicester - The Oldest City In The UK
The City Of Legends
The City of Leicester is many centuries old and has seen the downfall of many civilizations, as well as the rise of many. It is situated in the East Midlands of England and lies near the National forest. From the ruins of the Leicester Castle to the burial site of King Richard III, this city has a rich historical background.
Leicester is where you’ll find the famous Leicester Cathedral which has been around for over 900 years and where Richard III was reinterred. Leicester was founded by the Romans and it is assumed that they discovered Rome about 2,000 years ago. The Romans called it ‘Ratae Corieltauvorum’.
The Romans had a prosperous and long rule. Then Anglo-Saxons came along and took up residence where the Romans used to live which is now the city of Leceister. The Anglo-Saxons named the City officially as ‘Leceister’ after the River Soar which was called ‘Leire’ instead of Soar and the other half of the name was taken into account of the symbolicalness of the Roman ruins and this is how they came up with the ‘cester’ in the Leicester.
Later on, Leicester was invaded by the Danes. Leicester is actually a very diverse city. A wide variety of people from all over the world are living here including Bangladesh, Pakistan, Somalia, Poland and many more. More than 70 languages are spoken in Leicester! This diverse group of people have also formed their own community organizations. Now the population of Leicester is 357,394 and it is the 11th most populous city in England.

8. The Jewry Wall And Its Ancient Origins
Jewry Wall is a ruined and ancient wall of the Roman century (2-century) in Leicester. As Leicester is an old city which has seen many civilizations it is bound to have historical landmarks. It lies to the west of St Nicholas Church and on the left of the Wall, you can see the Jewry Wall Museum as well. Interestingly, The Jewry Wall was also featured in the famous game ‘Assassin’s Creed’ as an ‘Old Bath House’.
The Jewry Wall is an important artefact of Roman rule and dates back to as far as 30 AD, it is also one of the oldest and most tremendous pieces of the Roman civilization. There’s much contradiction on why the Jewry Wall was built. Some say it was dedicated to the god of Janus and some claim that this Wall is just a part of the famous public Roman baths and the ruins of these baths lie nearby the Wall.
9. Ruins of The Leicester Castle
Built around 1070, Leicester Castle is a Medieval Castle where John of Gaunt and his wife stayed and passed away. This Castle was used for many centuries. Leicester Castle has the same name as the city and is situated in the west of the city. Many kings and royalty stayed at this Castle and it became an official Royal residence later on. However, in the 15th century, it was no longer a place of residence but instead, it became a courthouse where sessions of Parliament of England were held. Now the ruins of this Castle are a famous landmark of the city of Leicester.
10. Pay Tribute At The Arch of Remembrance
Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, a well known and leading designer of his time, Arch of Remembrance is a memorial dedicated to the World War 1 servicemen. It is located in Victoria Park, Leicester, in the Midlands of England. It is a beautiful stone arch with four legs. The arches are designed in such a way that the sun shines through them majestically at the sunrise of 11th November, Armistice Day. The Arch is located at the highest visible point of Victoria Park and can be seen from all the way from far away from roads such as Lancaster and London road.
The arches have various inscriptions on them from the Hymn “O Valiant Heart” remembering the lost ones of World War 1. This melancholic poem is still recited to this day when paying tribute to the fallen soldiers and the lost lives of World War 1.
