There is so much to do in Loughborough town centre, that it’s well worth adding a couple of days on to your break, just to see what it has to offer. Check out some of these ideas for a handy guide to Loughborough town centre.

Places to shop

The main shopping area in Loughborough can be found around Market Street, Market Place Swan Street and The Rushes, with two shopping centres to choose from – The Rushes Shopping Centre and Carillon Court.

In this area you’ll find pretty much everything you might need to buy, from clothes, food and accessories, to electrical goods and sports equipment.

At Carillon Court, you can enjoy free Wi-fi and cheap parking, while The Rushes is worth a visit, not only for its range of shops and great restaurants.

Here you’ll find ‘The Signaler’ by award-winning artist & sculptor John Atkin. This piece of art is a metal shape that is gradually changing colour with the elements, to assume a colour unique to Loughborough.

Lovely Local Markets

The Loughborough town centre market has been around for nearly 800 years and is so popular that it was even crowned ‘Best Large Outdoor Market’ at the British Market of the Year Awards in 2017.

This was because of the support given to local traders and the work with Loughborough University, not to mention the huge range of stalls that there are to take a stroll around and products to buy.
