Things to do
Burrough Hill is an Iron Age fort that sits around four miles away from the centre of Melton Mowbray. Although there are no building remains here, it’s still a worthwhile visit, as the mound gives you an exceptional view of the surrounding Leicestershire countryside.
If the children are getting restless, take them Twinlakes Park where they’ll soon burn off some energy. Within this 70-acre park you’ll find lots of rides and attractions to keep them amused.
Melton Mowbray is nestled in the Vale of Belvoir, and Belvoir Castle itself is just a short journey away. This Regency building has stunningly elegant interiors as well as beautiful gardens that seem to be a natural amphitheatre carved out of the land.
