Printers Market Harborough

Market Harborough has this month been named as one of the top 50 best towns and suburbs to live in by The Sunday Times newspaper.

The announcement came in part three of The Sunday Times’ Best Places to Live guide, which combines data on crime rates, house prices and school performance to rank the UK’s towns, suburbs, rural areas and cities.The Old Grammar School - 18th March 2015 - resize

The guide states: “Still relatively undiscovered by those seeking life after London, this ancient town in low-cost Leicestershire is within the magic hour by fast train from St Pancras.”

“The charismatic mix of period architecture in the centre is topped by the newly renovated Old Grammar School, built on stilts in the early 1600s with a marketplace underneath. You can hire it out now, though Harborough has plenty of other interesting places for a get-together.”

“The Grand Union Canal ends here – a nice spot for boating, cycling or a weekend stroll. There’s lots of new housing going up around the town, from one-bed affordable flats to six-bedroom detached.”
