Market Harborough is a busy market town dating back to medieval times, with a pedestrianised centre overlooked by a graceful church tower. It sits at the end of the Market Harborough Arm of the Grand Union Canal.
Welland Park is a peaceful green space with a paved riverside walk threading through the lawns and flowerbeds. At the restored Union Wharf, red-brick warehouses have been converted to trendy waterside apartments and arts and crafts workshops. What was once a bustling industrial quarter is now a hub of creative activity.
