Welcome to Cross Cultural Communication: Multicultural Restaurants on Leicester's London Road. This online exhibition is the culmination of several months of work by students from the University of Leicester and explores the links between Leicester, multiculturalism, food and identity.
There are various other studies on multiculturalism in Leicester but ours is the first to explore something that we can all relate to – where and what we eat.
With 45.1% of the city's population identifying as White British on the last Census, Leicester is probably the best example of a multicultural British city.

We hope that you enjoy exploring the exhibition. Feel free to leave comments and let us know your opinions.
