About Coalville

Coalville, a town in the heart of North West Leicestershire, offers a unique blend of industrial heritage, natural beauty, and community spirit, making it an intriguing destination for those seeking a weekend break with a difference. This town, while perhaps lesser-known compared to some of its neighbours, holds a rich tapestry of stories and landscapes that are ripe for exploration.

The essence of Coalville is deeply intertwined with its mining heritage, a pivotal part of its identity since the 19th century. This history is thoughtfully preserved and showcased at the Snibston Discovery Museum, which stands on the site of the former Snibston Colliery. The museum, although it has seen changes over the years, remains a beacon of innovation and history, offering visitors insights into the technological advances and human stories behind the coal mining industry that once defined the area. While exploring the exhibits, one can't help but feel a deep connection to the generations of miners who worked under the earth, shaping both the landscape and the community above.

Beyond the industrial heart of Coalville, the surrounding countryside offers an abundance of natural beauty and outdoor activities. The town serves as a gateway to the National Forest, an ambitious environmental project transforming landscapes across Leicestershire, Derbyshire, and Staffordshire. This evolving forest, now brimming with new woodland, walking trails, and cycling paths, provides a green escape where visitors can immerse themselves in nature. Walking or cycling through the National Forest, one can witness the remarkable transformation of former industrial lands into vibrant ecosystems, a testament to the resilience of nature and the community's commitment to environmental stewardship.

Coalville's cultural scene, though modest, is vibrant and engaging. The Century Theatre, housed in a remarkable mobile structure originally designed to entertain coal miners across the country, now stands permanently in Coalville, offering a variety of performances, from drama and comedy to music and film. This unique venue embodies the town's spirit of innovation and community, providing a focal point for arts and entertainment.

The town also serves as a base for exploring the wider Leicestershire area. Nearby attractions include the historic market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, with its medieval castle offering panoramic views and a glimpse into England's tumultuous past. For those interested in motor racing, the Donington Park circuit, located just a short drive away, hosts a range of events and experiences for motorsport enthusiasts.

Dining in Coalville offers a chance to enjoy traditional British fare as well as international cuisine, reflecting the town's diverse community. Local pubs and restaurants serve everything from hearty pub meals to more exotic dishes, providing plenty of options for a relaxing evening meal.

As evening turns into night, Coalville's community spirit shines through. Local pubs and social clubs offer a warm welcome, often with live music or entertainment, providing a perfect opportunity to mingle with locals and experience the town's friendly atmosphere.
