The Region

The East Midlands offers an ideal mix of town and country, as well as commutability to London. Historic cities like Nottingham are surrounded by rich countryside, and you’re typically only an hour’s train to London on the new and improved train service to King’s Cross.

Historic market towns like Market Harborough and Melton Mowbray are classically English with rich histories, while cities like Leicester and Nottingham offer real value for money.
