St. Martin's Cathedral is an 11th century church, which became a cathedral in 1926. The cathedral is a repository of the finest collection of monuments in Leicester. The oldest extant monument in the church is the Tournai Slab, which dates from about 1325.

Newarke Houses Museum consists of two Jacobean houses, showcasing the social history of Leicester from the 16th century to the present day, with many toys, clocks, and coins on display. The museum is made up of two houses: Wygston's Chantry House which was built in 1511 and is the only Elizabethan urban gentry house in England, and Skeffington House, which was built in 1583 and still boasts original stonework in the back.

The New Walk Museum and Art Gallery is located within the historic New Walk area of Leicester. The building was originally the Proprietary School and was built in 1837. In 1849, the Literary and Philosophical Society formally presented its various collections to the city, which form the core of the displays. It is said that the museum has been the inspiration for Lord Attenborough and Sir David Attenborough, who pursued their careers in acting and natural history as a result of spending their formative years visiting the galleries.

The Jewry Wall is one of Leicester's most famous landmarks. It is a rare example of Roman walling, which has survived for nearly 2,000 years. Originally it was part of the Roman public baths and separated the exercise hall, which stood on the site of St. Nicholas church, from the rest of the baths. The Jewry Wall Museum shows the numerous excavations in this site and with it, Leicester's early history.

Leicester's Museum of Science and Technology is located in a 19th century sewage pumping station, known as the Abbey Pumping Station. The station has four massive steam engines, which pumped raw sewage to the sewage treatment works at Beaumont Leys.
