The Severn Bore
Arising in the Cambrian Mountains in mid Wales and joining the Irish Sea as the Bristol Channel, the Severn is Britain's longest river (354 kilometres). The river is the site of one of the country's few natural phenomena, the Severn Bore. This is a tidal wave which travels upstream propagated by the narrowing of the river's channel. Usually seen as a series of three or four waves, the Bore can reach speeds of up to 13 miles per hour and, with a particularly high tide, can reach a height of six feet.
There are several places where the Bore can be seen and there are tide tables which predict the hour of its occurrence. At Minsterworth the road is right beside the river and access to the river can be gained at the Bird-in-Hand pub, by the old ferry or at the church. It has become an attraction for surfers to ride the wave upstream and the record distance is currently some seven and a half miles (set in April 2006).
Local parking is available at several sites where the road approaches the river bank.
There is local parking at the access points.
Viewing: no charge
Rockingham Castle was built 900 years ago for Richard the Conqueror and sits on the top of a ridge of hills giving views of the valley beyond, across five different counties.
Despite its address being listed as Market Harborough (a very attractive market town) it's actually closest to the industrial town of Corby and visitors would do better to follow road signs to Corby rather than Market Harborough
The Watson family who own the castle have lived there for 450 years and only one other family owned the castle before them.
The grounds and castle are open in the summer months - roughly from Easter to the end of September. Between Easter and the end of May they are only open on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays (of which there are two in May). From June to September they are open on Tuesdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays.
Opening hours are 12 noon to 5 pm.
If you can form a group of 20 or more visitors, they will open on additional days by prior appointment - there are links on the website to arrange such visits.
On open days the entry price is £7.50 for adults, £6.50 for Old Aged Pensioners and £4.50 for children up to 16 years of age. Dogs are welcomed in the gardens but not in the castle.
Special events such as Christmas Fayres and Craft Shows are held periodically - check the website for details. The castle is also available for weddings and other private functions.
Leicester has been a market town for over 700 years. Today the Leicester market is a bustling cosmopolitan mix of over 300 stalls (fresh produce, books, leather goods, clothing) in the heart of the city. It is the largest covered market in Europe. The family of a local football celebrity who started his professional career with Leicester City FC are still fruit and vegetable traders here.
In the centre of the market is the old Corn Exchange building, built in 1850 and flanked by stone steps. This now serves as a restaurant and bar. Outside is a stature of the Duke of Rutland.
Adjacent is the Indoor Market hall which houses the fish market and a delicatessen. The original ornately designed Fish Market hall which had distinctly cast iron pillars was closed in the mid 1970s but was retained as part of the new structure.
It can be approached from Cheapside (adjacent to the Clock Tower); from the corner of Granby Street and Horsefair Street and from any of the narrow streets and arcades leading from High Street and Hotel Street.
Outdoor: Monday to Saturday
Indoor: Tuesday to Saturday
Jewry Wall and Roman Baths
Leicester is steeped in history and there are many ancient monuments and places of historic interest, particulary to the south and west of the city centre. It was originally a Roman settlement (Ratae Coritanorum) where the Foss Way crossed the River Soar.
A five minute walk away from the Clock Tower is the Jewry Wall, one of the largest surviving pieces of Roman building in the country and one of Leicesters most famous landmarks. It consists of a wall with two arched doorways which form the entrance to the Roman baths. The foundations and outline of the baths are laid out at the foot of the wall.
The Leicester Museum of Archaeology stands within the grounds housing displays of the Leicester area from prehistoric to mediaeval times. Its large Roman collection includes mosaics and wall paintings. The museum also shows a multimedia presentation The Making of Leicester the story of Leicester and its citizens from the Iron Age to the year 2000.
