Everards Meadows provides 70 acres of beautiful green space to explore, with quality cycling and pedestrian walkways that connect to Route 6 on the National Cycle Network. The meadows are also a haven for wildlife, with a wide variety of birds calling it home. Look out for the bug hotel and see what wildlife you can discover.
You can walk or cycle across the meadows and along the Grand Union Canal, winding along the banks of the River Soar into Leicester City Centre or discover the stunning Leicestershire countryside.
Everards Meadows is a shared space, opened up for all to use and enjoy and we try our hardest to keep it clean and safe. We, therefore, do not permit horses to enter the site at all and thank riders for adhering to this.
Bikes can be hired onsite from award-winning Rutland Cycles, which offers a range of bikes to suit all skills and abilities. Their experienced team are always on hand to provide you with bike advice and information on local cycle routes. Find out more.
Enjoy the beautiful views of the meadows whilst you relax, eat and drink at your favourite local Coffee House 'Jenno’s'. Alongside their range of premium drinks and tantalising homemade cakes, you can enjoy a light menu. Find out more.
Everards Meadows is also home to our brand new state-of-the-art brewery, where you can join us at The Beer Hall for brunch, lunch or dinner and of course great beer (we also have a great selection of other drinks on offer too). Our shop is stocked full of your favourite beers, including new limited-edition brews and great gifts. Find out more
Just a stone’s throw away from Fosse Shopping Park, Everards Meadows is the perfect place to take a break, relax and refuel after a spot of shopping.
