What 3 words



Over recent years Leicester has seen a public interest in street art rise considerably

Events such as Bring The Paint Festival alongside the opening of a dedicated street art centre have brought international attention to a city rich in heritage. Artists such as ARTISM, CAPER, MAIHEM and RACEE set a regional style for future generations whilst visiting international artists have both supported an existing legacy and inspired new generations of artists and fans alike


The guide covers not only the key sites that are worth visiting throughout the city but also serves as a documentation of the city as it currently stands within a visual landscape that is constantly being redefined. Broken into zones we hope this guide offers a section by section account of what there is to see.
