Leicestershire is a gently undulating county of central England, known for fox-hunting and red cheese. The county town is Leicester.

Another centre of population in the county is Melton Mowbray famous for the production of pork pies and Stilton cheese. Nearby is historic Belvoir (pronounced "beaver") Castle, the seat of the Duke of Rutland.

The north-west of the county contains a small coalfield for which the town of Coalville was named. It is transected by the M1 motorway.
