The Area

orming part of the Borough of Oadby & Wigston, Wigston Magna lies 5 miles south of Leicester city centre. With Knighton forming the northern border and Oadby to the east, the A5199 leaves Wigston to the south providing access to some of the county's most delightful countryside with a number of charming villages nearby. By the middle ages, the village of Wichingstone had become known as Wigston Two Steeples or Two Spires as it was unusually, the home of 2 spired churches known today as All Saints & St. Wistans.
The village has grown into a thriving town in recent years with a number of housing developments spreading in all directions around the busy town centre. With a selection of day to day facilities, public houses and restaurants, the town centre has a good selection of shops..


A number of primary schools around the towns residential areas feed primarily into The Wigston Academy for children aged 11 and upwards and The Leicester Grammar and Stoneygate Schools are a convenient drive away in nearby Great Glen
Local leisure facilities include: Wigston pool and fitness centre, Parklands Leisure Centre, Brocks Hill Countryside Park, The Leicester Race Course and nearby Knighton Park as well as a number of golf courses.

Wigston remains popular today with local buyers and those from further afield, due in part to its proximity to Leicester city centre, its professional quarter, hospitals, universities and railway station which is approx. 1 hour from London St. Pancras; its easy access to the motorway network and Fosse retail park via the nearby Outer ring road.
