Visiting Leicester, England - a photographic guide.
Leicester Railway Station
Leicester station, formerly known as Leicester London Road to distinguish it from the Central and Belgrave Road stations, was built by the Midland Railway in the 1890s to replace the former Midland Counties Railway Campbell Street station.
The station had separate entrances and exits which were used for arrivals and departures. Although they do all not retain their former use, they are lavishly decorated and are best viewed from the other side of London Road.
