Leicester Towers History

The Towers hospital, formerly known as the “Borough Lunatic Asylum” when it was open in the Victorian era *Source Leicester City Council, served patients with mental illnesses for over 140 years. Having opened in 1869, it finally closed its doors in the year 2000 and saw its last outpatient in 2013. This now empty building was pioneering in it’s day, providing treatment and not just care, for those suffering with health issues. Prior to this, many patients would have been housed in pauper houses, with just basic care provision. The Towers Hospital site is currently under redevelopment however, part of the original Hospital now sits vacant and is an opportunity for you to explore before it closes it’s doors for good.
