"Pubs, bars, many different clubs to choose from. Fancy places to eat for a wonderful dinner. Cinema, the mall is open till late on student discount nights. Bowling, paintball and pretty much everything you can think of that any other town would have to offer."
"Many smaller clubs and three big ones: Republic, 02 and Venom. The best being Mosh, which is a slightly smaller one."
"Small, niche bars with a variety of atmospheres for everyone. Clubs aren't as good compared to other cities but overall, Leicester is better for its bar and comedy scene."
"The promotions team who work with the SU also organise events in the city centre, with loads of bars and nightclubs holding student or normal events all week. There are lots of bar crawls and socials in the city throughout the year which is good for socialising outside of university and getting to know coursemates or students from other universities."
"Various clubs and bars, bowling, casino and niche shops. Fruit and vegetable market in the centre also."
"Republic: large club in town but only cheap on Mondays, can sometimes be quiet. Mosh: great for alternative music, very cheap. Candy's/XY: club open some Thursdays and weekends, standard pricing except on student nights. Overground Sessions: DnB. Basement: open later, often go to after Mosh or Overground."
"Festivals for Diwali, Christmas lights etc, two cinemas, a theatre, the comedy month in February, a few decent clubs and bars, botanical gardens."
"Several clubs that open until 4.00 am."
"Mosh – alternative nightclub with three floors, always busy. Club Republic is popular for those who enjoy RnB. Specific nights for groups of people eg Indian nights at clubs. Other clubs but not experienced those."
"Absolutely loads! Bars, nightclubs, shops, cafes, restaurants, museums, the space centre, the botanical garden, parks, gyms, the rugby and football stadium."
