I lived in Hinckley and Burbage until I was 28 ( am now 32). Burbage is a little village right next to Hinckley and some areas are lovely - quite posh. My parents and brother still live there. What did you want to know i.e schools, nightclubs, shops etc?
There are a few village shops in Burbage, Hinckley has a main shopping street - Castle Street. Has a few shops- WHSmith, Dorothy Perkins, Wilkinsons, Woolworths, Argos. If you want a big shopping spree you'd need to go to Leicester or even Coventry which is close. Birmingham is only 45 mins on the train. Hinckley has its own two platform train station, and a bus station and a few supermarkets which are close.
When I lived there there wasn't much crime - just the usual punch ups on a Friday and Saturday night.
Can't think of much else to say, if you have any more questions - just ask!
