Museums, Weekend and Cake

One of our favourites

Unfortunately, I didn't ask whether I could take any pictures inside.

Two historic houses make up Newarke Houses Museum, one is Wygston's Chantry House and the other is Skeffington House. The museum shows exhibits which tell the story of 20th century Leicester and the history of the Royal Leicestershire Regiment.

If you look in the background of this picture you will see The Magazine Gateway

The building is the remains of the mediaeval gateway added to Leicester Castle by the Third Earl of Leicester. It is a Grade I Listed Building, you never know it might pop up on Grand Designs one of these days!!!

Jewry Wall Museum


Jewry Wall Museum was part of the Roman town's public baths, with abit of imagination you can see  the layout of the baths, its what remains of the walls that you can see.

and after all that, cake was needed.

sounds like a good thing to do on a cold day, I think I would have needed cake also.
