Local Area

Sandwiched between the city’s two main waterways, the River Soar and the Grand Union Canal, Rocket Studios 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. Rocket Studios, positioned at Wolsey Island offers a fantastic balance of city living and natural charm.
