Melton resides in the beautiful Leicestershire countryside. Its town centre Melton Mowbray, is a quintessential English market town built on a strong tradition of farming. Renowned for its fine food and drink, the borough has become the centre of excellence for local food producers. The town itself is steeped in history and together with the surrounding area has much to offer all those that choose to live, work or visit here.
