Polish Visitors Are Shown Old Leicester

During the Summer, I showed a group of visitors from Poland around the historic Old Town of Leicester.

The visit was arranged through Sue Hunt of the Loughborough Twinning Association, as part of an entertaining weekend spent by the visitors from Poland in Leicestershire.

I'm glad to say that one of the group was an excellent linguist, who was able to translate for me.

I pointed out to the group that Leicester is one of the oldest towns in Britain, dating back to Roman times.

The group saw the Roman Jewry Wall; the statue of Richard III; the ancient St. Nicholas Church and St. Mary de Castro Church; and the surviving buildings of Leicester Castle.

I find it very rewarding to show people what a truly historic old city Leicester is, and in particular it is very worthwhile to demonstrate this to visitors from abroad.
