    Is Leicester considered a 'Valley of death'?

    If so how close will you come, and if the moneys good does your life insurance cover you for ventures in to the 'Valley of death'?

    I suggest you go, but dont go out after dark.

    Go and enjoy it - if you do not feel safe then taxi's are cheap and watch DVDs in the evening after a long meal at the hotel. I cannot think Leicester is any worse than any other city centres. Common sense behaviour is the order of the day - avoid dark alleys, parks, dodgy pubs.

    You got that right. Although Cardiff are getting closer to that status now!

    Stay clear. I only live 10 miles from the city centre but would never dream of venturing into the heart of the beast.

    Deffo go, think of the money!

    at least you can visit stewby!!! (_;)

    Have you made a will yet Boothy? Probably worthwhile if you decide to risk all. Personally, I'd stay well clear.

    strangely they left my woman comment :P

    On its own it sounds a little bit racist, but maybe the mod knows about sainty's whinging in the "have you ever" thread.

    I missed the drama but can guess the structure.

    Yep seems extreme.

    Go - but make sure your Daily Mail isn't sticking out your pocket

    did i miss the drama LLama

    Last time we were in braunstone we have an office in leicester and for some reason that became clear they got nottingham staff to do an event there.Whilst we were there they were shooting with air rifles at us and the police that was a lovely day.So then we only worked in the city centre.
