Well connected & friendly
It’s no surprise this quintessential english market town was voted as one of the best places to live in the UK. Market Harborough is a charming market town full of history, culture, delicious food and independent stores which are too good just to window shop. After wandering around the streets which are decorated in medieval architecture alongside modern industrial builds, head to Brampton Valley or Union Wharf for some outstanding natural beauty.
You really are blessed here as Rutland Water and Foxton Locks are a short drive away. So grab something from Gounded kitchen (think healthy, happy, colourful bowls of goodness) or Fardon Fields Farm Shop for a gourmet spread and explore!
Personality & charm
For the sportier people you’ll probably already know Leicester City FC & Leicester Tiger RFC are based here. Why not kick around your own ball at Carlton Park? It’s the perfect family day out.
Market Harborough acts as a transport hub in the sense that you can be in London St Pancras within the hour, and there’s plenty of other places around the country you can get to easily. The A1, A6 and A14 are nearby.
