Belgrave Gate (A Guided Walk in Leicester)

[An image showing Belgrave Gate]"Belgrave Gate" is one of the many Guided Walks devised and led by the well known Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours.

These walks are a delightful way to soak up some Local History.

Belgrave Gate is a major artery leading out of Leicester towards the North, and is on the line of the famous Roman road, the Fosse Way.

It was also part of the Danish settlements outside Leicester`s Town Wall, the word "Gate" being a Danish term meaning "street".

The road leads to Belgrave, once an independent village. Along the way it becomes the Golden Mile, famous for its Indian restaurants, jewellers and sari shops, as well as the fabulous Diwali Lights.
