Especially drivers who are not used to driving on the left side of the road may want to choose a smaller car to be able to maneuver more easily. Additionally, a compact car requires less gas, and petrol is pretty expensive in the UK when compared to the US.
Unlike most European countries, miles are used for posting the speed limit in the UK. Around schools and highly pedestrian zones, 20 mph is permitted, while 30 mph is the limit for the rest of the city. Country roads allow between 60 and 70 mph, while freeways (called motorways in England and marked with an “M”) permit up to 70 mph.
Expect to pay around £1.20 for a liter of petrol during your stay in Leicester ($1.53 USD per liter, which means $6.12 USD per gallon). Paying is possible with cash or card, but bear in mind that, if paying with card at the machine, a 4-digit pin for verification may be required.
There are various parking facilities available in Leicester, including city council garages and lots, such as in Victoria Park, on Dover Street, or in Phoenix Square. Rates are around £1 ($1.28) per hour in the city center and per two or three hours further out of town. Metered on-street parking is also an option, with prices around £3 ($3.84) per two hours.
