Over the Christmas period, one of my best friends (who is also called Charlotte!) and I planned for her to come and visit me in Leicester. Both her, and my other best friend from home, Dougie, came to stay with me last year as well, but I thought this would be a fab opportunity to show my viewers what there is available to do in Leicester!
I have not included everything, as some things I took her to do last year, however I have featured some of the city’s headlining attractions – eg. the Richard III Visitor Centre, The Cathedral (which unfortunately we could not go inside as there was a service in progress, but it is where King Richard’s grave is), the Highcross Shopping Centre, Haymarket, New Walk and some of the city’s clubs. DISCLAIMER: FLASHING LIGHTS AT 0:06-0:12.
Having both my best friends from university and one of my best friends from home together in one place was amazing and I would do it again as soon as I could – I am already planning my visit to Reading to stay with Charlotte at her university because I can’t wait to see her again!
Whilst I hope that this video shows you how exciting it is to have visitors at university and how it is 100% possible to stay close to your friends from home, I also hope this vlog gives you an idea of what the city is like if you haven’t yet visited.
