From its origins as a major Roman settlement to its current status as one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the UK, Leicester has a proud and distinctive identity. This extraordinary history is embodied in the buildings that have shaped the city. Leicester in 50 Buildings explores the history of this rich and vibrant community through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the ancient Jewry Wall to the shiny and modern National Science Centre, this unique study celebrates the city's architectural heritage in a new and accessible way.

Well-known local author Stephen Butt guides the reader on a tour of the city’s historic buildings and modern architectural marvels. The churches, theatres, pubs and cinemas of Leicester's industrial heyday are examined alongside the innovative buildings of a 21st century city.
