The Heritage Centre is a modern building constructed, in part, from three historic buildings. It forms the heart and gateway to our attractions.

Granite’s Coffee Shop is open daily from 10am to 5pm, serving teas, cakes and light lunches. Our aim is for Granite’s to be renowned for its high level of customer care and satisfaction.

Beyond Granite’s our Heritage Rooms aims to educate and inform you about the rich and diverse history surrounding the villages of Mountsorrel and Rothley. The displays continue on the first floor and will change regularly.

On the first floor, accessed via a lift, we have our Quiet Room which provides somewhere for visitors with an illness or disability to take a few minutes out of their visit to administer their medication or just to have a quiet rest.

Outside you will find our Children’s play area and additional seating overlooking the railway and nature trail.

You will find the Heritage Centre is disabled, wheelchair, pushchair, child and baby friendly.

Sorry, ONLY assistance dogs are allowed within the Heritage Centre. Dogs on leads are allowed onto the Patio.
