Located about 15 miles northeast of Leicester, Melton Mowbray is a pretty riverside town most famous for food - it's synonymous with pork pies, and is a major producer of traditional Stilton cheese. The station provides services to London, Birmingham and Stansted Airport, and it forms a loose border between the town centre to the north and the residential areas to the south. Shopping and entertainment are focused around the part-pedestrianised High Street and the busy thoroughfares of Burton Street and Leicester Street. On the latter, you'll find Melton's market square where the town has been hosting street markets for over a millennium, and they still take place on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Other sights include a fine Art Deco cinema on King Street, the 15th-century Anne of Cleves house - now a popular pub - and the grand St Mary's church, parts of which date back to Norman times. They're all a few minutes' walk north of the station.
