We are proud of our rich heritage, our inseparable links with Stilton Cheese and the famous Melton Mowbray Pork Pies. History has been made here and there’s a lot more to come.
Walking around Melton Mowbray today, it’s almost certain that you’ll be following in the footsteps of royalty. Between 1194 and 1487, 11 of England’s 15 kings visited Melton Mowbray, but what brought them to this Leicestershire market town?
Melton heritage trail will show you a thousand years of history including the places and people that made the town what it is today. Whilst you’re in Melton you can explore parkland, visit cafes, buy local produce and head to the Melton Carnegie Museum, which features informative exhibitions on the history of Melton
Mowbray and the surrounding area.
Pick up a copy of the trail from Melton Carnegie Museum, Melton Borough Council, St Mary’s Church and other prominent locations in the town.
