Loughborough Travel Guide: 49 reviews and 67 photos
Loughborough, pronounced as "Luf-bra", is not my hometown, but where I am at the moment till 2004. I am born in Malaysia and was educated in Singapore for 17 years.
Loughborough is in the middle of England. It is within Leicestershire, in the Midlands, surrounded by 3 cities namely Leicester, Nottingham and Derby. These cities are within easy reach from Loughborough by the trains or buses. It is also surrounded by the peaceful countryside - Charnwood Forest, managed by the Charnwood Borough Council. Loughborough is also the home to the Great Central Railway and has the world's largest bell foundary and museum.
Good and efficient rail network will enable one to reach London in one and half hours. The proximity to the East Midlands Airport (EMA) provides further transportation to many parts of Europe, especially with the "no-frill" airline BMIbaby and Easyjet.
Loughborough is also a small University town with the "world-renowned" Loughborough University for its Physical education and Sports, and Engineering.
