The city of Leicester lies on the River Soar, and is close to the eastern end of the National Forest. It is one of the oldest cities in England, with a history going back at least two millennia. It is understood that the Romans arrived in the Leicester area around AD 47, during their conquest of the South of Britain. The English language we use today originated in Leicester, after warring Anglo Saxons and Vikings stopped fighting and exchanged languages. According to ‘LeicestershireLive’, the River Soar which Leicester lies on once used to be pink, due to local textile factories, but was restored to its natural state by the Environmental Agency after the closure of the textile industries along the river. The fact the river is located all around Leicester, and the architecture is visual documentation of different periods of history, proves that having the chance to live within Leicester is a great opportunity to experience England’s oldest city in all its beauty.
