Are you looking for a location that is jam-packed with local amenities, good schooling and great transport links whilst keeping your finger on the pulse of the city? Great, because Glenfield offers an ideal blend of urban convenience and semi-rural living. Glenfield is located less than four miles to the northwest of the city. This popular village boasts a bustling centre. The core of which is, The Square. A thriving mix of retailers all rub shoulders in and around this popular village centre. Glenfield was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, listed as containing only twelve houses. Enlarged greatly during the early – mid 20th century and furthermore since. Large developments of homes were constructed in the 1980’s and 1990’s to cater for the modern, growing families. These developments, such as the Elm Tree Avenue estate, are now considered some of the most popular locations within the village. With quite cul-de-sacs a plenty and schooling within walking distance, it is very easy to see why families opt for this connected, modern living. The village is also the site of (the once) world’s largest underground railway tunnel. The Glenfield end of the tunnel is still visible, although closed to the public. However, regular organised tours are conducted throughout the year.
Glenfield Schooling Your child’s education is something that takes serious consideration. However, I am pleased to say the village is home to two primary schools. The Hall School and Glenfield Primary are both Ofsted rated good and been a magnet for parents for many years. Secondary schools are close by in neighbouring villages.
Cafes, Restaurants and Pubs Glenfield spoils it’s discerning drinkers and foodies to the max. Home to two traditional village pubs, a family chain restaurant, an Indian, and an independent pub and restaurant, Glenfield caters for all tastes. The Nags Head and The Railway are the two traditional watering holes. They both cater for light bites and evening pub grub whilst providing a great community atmosphere and refreshing beverages to while away an hour or five. The Forge, which as the name suggests, is located within the historic village centre. This pub and dining room is a firm foodie favourite amongst locals and beyond. Their inviting garden terrace (boasting The Pizza Shed) encourages those afternoon summer drinks whilst inside is both comfy and cosy and offers a varied food and wine menu. I think I would also be doing Glenfield an injustice without mentioning the ‘Co-op cafe’. Yes, I did say Co-op café. More recently the Morrisons café, this place has been a well-loved haunt for literally decades. Breakfast, lunch or an early evening meal, you can find it here.
Sports and Leisure Keeping fit and toned in Glenfield has never been easier. The local gym ‘Progress Works’ is a state-of-the-art facility that caters and coaches all levels of experience and needs. Between Ellis Park and Glenfield Sports Ground there are an abundance of sporting facilities.
The Community Glenfield is a very sociable and community-based village. Events are held throughout the year at the various parish facilities. The village boasts its own newspaper, The Glenfield Gazette, to keep you up to speed with village life. There are also various social channels to keep you abreast of all things community.
