Newtown Living offers its tenants a hassle-free living experience like no other in Leicester City Centre, including regular upkeep and landscaping of the garden areas and window cleaning on a routine basis.

An enviable location.

Sandwiched between the city’s two main waterways, the River Soar and the Grand Union Canal, Lock 44 is the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors and lead an active lifestyle. The canal side footpath follows a scenic route through Abbey Park towards the city centre, which takes just 10 minutes to cycle along a mostly traffic-free route.

Abbey Park itself offers a tranquil escape from hectic city life, with a boating lake, bowling green, tennis courts, lavender maze and a charming café. The area also offers a secondary school, Leicester College campus, two city centre universities and hospitals, a Post Office, GP practices and dentists’ surgeries. All of this – and more – is just a stone’s throw from a development that also boasts waterfront views and green spaces aplenty. Lock 44, positioned at Wolsey Island offers a fantastic balance of city living and natural charm.

Convenience of the city.

Leicester city centre is a short enough distance away that its bars, restaurants, theatres and attractions can be enjoyed without the need to drive. Public transport is frequent and a trip to the watch the latest theatrical production or have a drink with friends in Leicester’s Cultural Quarter only takes a 20 minute stroll. Its well-connected location also makes Lock 44 a superb option for those working in the city centre.

Over the footbridge to the west of Lock 44 is Pioneer Park and the neighbouring Abbey Retail Park, providing an eclectic mix of retailers, an ASDA Superstore, Nuffield Health & Fitness Centre, alongside two outstanding visitor attractions; the National Space Centre and Abbey Pumping Station. In addition to their fantastic interactive museums, both of these venues put on a multitude of family oriented events throughout the year, perfect for keeping kids entertained.
