Greenacres – Leicester North

Greenacres is an exciting development at the Great Central Railway, offering quality office spaces available to businesses. The railway has taken a lease on a former community centre, situated just seconds from the end of the line at Leicester North station.

It's all set within tranquil green surroundings - though right next to Leicester's inner ring road and is easily reached by turning onto The Sidings (and of course - by a direct train service from Loughborough!) The buildings have commanding views over the city skyline.

The site is close to other great tourist attractions in Leicester including the National Space Centre and The Museum of Technology at Abbey Pumping Station. To find Greenacres, leave Leicester North station via the pedestrian gate, turn right, walk down the hill slightly and turn through the gate on the left.

The rejuvenation of the Greenacres site is a joint project between The Great Central Railway and Leicester City Council.
