Narborough Road

Narborough Road in Leicester is home to more than 35 ethnicities and Britain's most diverse street. Lovely!

"Narborough Road, south west Leicester, LE3. A mile-long stretch of shops and bars, cafes and restaurants, writes Lee Marlow.
For the 11,644 people who live in this busy suburb of Leicester, this is the commercial heart of their community, the fulcrum around which everything else turns.
For the academics at the London School of Economics and Political Science it's more than that, though. It's a nationwide curiosity. Narborough Road is, officially, the most diverse street in England, they have discovered.
There are 222 shop units on Narborough Road. Researchers at the LSE found that the owners of those units come from 22 countries around the world."
