Highfields to New Walk (Circular)
Starting near St Peter’s Shops off Melbourne Road, this circular walk will take you through Highfields to New Walk and back. You will pass some pockets of historic terraced housing that were built without road access and visit New Walk, which was built for the wealthy to walk from town to the old racecourse (now Victoria Park).
This walk is available on GoJauntly. GoJauntly is a free community based app which can be downloaded to your smart phone. There you can find local walks to follow, and even create some of your own.
Some free routes have been created on GoJauntly by volunteers for Leicester City Council.
