Wistow……..a hidden gem.

One can always be forgiven for going out for a quiet weekend drive only to be amazed at what one finds hidden deep in the British countryside. Whisto Rural Centre is one such hidden gem,
located only 6 miles from Leicester, deep in beautiful countryside this  delightful collection of  rural retail outlets with an excellent café/restaurant and one of the best garden centres offering a vast range at very realistic prices can only please.


There is for children, and for adults who have never really grown up, a delightful model village with, yes working trains. Donations are requested which go to a locally run charity to help young people. The village is a wonderful mix of buildings and scenery and is nestled within the expansive grounds of the garden centre.

If it is a little bit of ‘retail therapy’ you are after, with a difference, you will most certainly not be disappointed, among the more unusual is a shop totally aimed at the dog owner. Dogs are welcomed to the Centre.


Very high quality and varied garden lights, ornaments and a host of stimulating things to tease your wallet will be found along with an outstanding delicatessen and art gallery.
