Our Favourite Test Drive Routes in Leicester

Added: 12 October 2017

From our Drive Vauxhall showroom on Freemens Common Road, just off the Aylestone Road in Leicester, there are plenty of places to visit while assessing what could be your next Vauxhall. Here are just a few interesting places that you could drive to.

National Space Centre

If you want an urban route through the city then why not drive to the National Space Centre, located just off the A6 and about two miles north of the centre of Leicester, midway between Leicester’s inner and outer ring roads. When you arrive you will find six interactive galleries, the largest planetarium anywhere in the UK, a 3D simulator experience plus the incredible 42m high Rocket Tower. The award-winning National Space Centre is an out of this world experience, and so too will be the test drive in your new Vauxhall!

Rutland Water

Rutland Water, 28miles and just less than an hour’s scenic drive from our showroom is a picturesque reservoir in the county of Rutland, to the east of Oakham. Known originally as Empingham Reservoir during construction up until its opening in 1976 when it became Rutland Water. The reservoir covers an area of 4.19 sq. miles and became a world heritage site in 1991. Surrounded by 4,200 acres of beautiful countryside the Rutland Water Park offers activities for all the family including a beach and many water sports plus a visitor centre, shops, cafes and restaurants.
