From when I have been there, it seems to be a nice area

from when ive passed thru it looks pretty nice, its close to leicester as well, which is currently going thru a HUGE regen project and is looking set to be awesome.

Well if you are going to live there better learn how to spell it right


eyes and fingers not connecting with eachother today :lol:

Thanks guys ive got lots of info online but nice to hear peoples thoughts

went to leicester uni (NOT DE MONTFORT!)

awesome uni, awesome town/city leicester!

we live in hinckley, plenty of great schools, shopping not that good, but leicester has all the shops!!.. burbage is nice too..:p

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!

It will be great when the Romans & Vikings finish building and move on!






I'll get my coat..............
