New Walk is an elegant tree lined promenade that stretches south for about a kilometre from Welford Place to Victoria Park. Quite a contrast to the rest of the city centre. In the late-Georgian period Leicester was rapidly developing and the main impetus for laying out New Walk in 1785 was to control building on common land to the south. It soon attracted a better sort of housing development and now there are many fine buildings along the walk.
I’ve decided against commenting on the individual buildings though many are listed and information is available. Instead I think I’ll let New Walk speak for itself.
