IBIS LEICESTER. . Just under 20 miles from East Midlands airport, ibis Leicester City is ideally located in the centre, with Leicester's main train station only five minutes' walk from our front door. Easily accessed from the M69/M1, we're less than an hour from Birmingham and our site has its own small car park (parking is free!) for total convenience. If you prefer to park and ride, services run into the city every 15 minutes from Birstall, roughly four miles from our doorstep.
