Found at the southernmost tip of Leicestershire, Lutterworth is an attractive market town which has twice made a mark in history. In the fourteenth century John Wycliffe led the pioneering translation of the Bible into English and, more than five hundred years later, Sir Frank Whittle developed the Jet Engine at the Ladywood Works off Leicester Road, Lutterworth.

Located just a mile from the M1 Jnct 20 the main bus stop on George Street again makes for a safe and easy destination for coaches to drop off their passengers by prior arrangement.
