Melton Mowbray


The market town of Melton Mowbray is home to manufacturers, research and educational institutions of national importance. The town also has a long established association with foxhunting, pork pies and Stilton cheese, it is a popular and lively place to visit, especially on market days and has a rich and varied heritage. Melton's history is still evident today if one looks above the modern shop frontages and at buildings such as the Anne of Cleves' House, a gift from King Henry VIII to his divorced wife in the mid 16th century. The cathedral-sized St. Mary's Church dates from 1170. Known as the stateliest and most impressive of all Leicestershire churches, its 100 foot tower dominates the town.


Shopping, Cafes and Restaurants


Melton is a vibrant market town with an abundance of specialist independent retail, tasty bistro’s and cafes, local producers and markets which can be dated back to the 1086 Domesday Book. The town offers a truly unique shopping experience.


Street Market


Come and visit one of the Country’s oldest and finest markets. Every Tuesday and Saturday you can experience the hustle and bustle of the town’s busy street market. Based around the Market Place in the safe pedestrianised area of the town, the streets are filled with stalls selling everything from clothing to fresh produce.
