The Victoria - Bikers Pub: Touring pitches

General

  • Rock pub site near Coalville
  • Charity events, rock nights, bike nights and rideouts
  • Food available all day

Bikers, truckers and live music lovers – this is the place for you. Near Coalville in Leicestershire is The Victoria - Bikers Pub, where a friendly team sees all sorts from doctors to lawyers, and guarantees a rollicking welcome for those about to rock.

Free birds come to this popular pub from all over the country – and further afield – as a stopover on the way to Donington Park and Mallory, as a base when touring, and for the rock nights (three music stages!) and bike nights.

There are also charity events, rideouts at weekends – plus of course plenty of real ale and scrumpy (treat with caution?) The pub also has a garden of remembrance for famous and departed bikers and rockers like John Lennon, Gary Moore and Phil Lynott.

For stomach lining, the café serves all-day breakfasts and other meals during the day and a burger van sells award-winning nosh into the wee hours on weekend evenings, including Aberdeen Angus burgers, hot dogs with Irish-recipe sausages, bacon butties and chip butties stuffed with fresh handcut chips. Fancy a takeaway? Order a Chinese or Indian meal from a local restaurant and staff will supply the plates and cutlery.

Pitches at the Vic are within helpful staggering distance of the pub; outside loos are available at night when the pub is shut, and showers (and a swimming pool) are available a minute's drive away at a leisure centre.

Finally, as there’s much ale and scrumpy being consumed, the pitches here are for adults only. Rock on…

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Those feeling energetic can roar along the 30-mile circuit of the Brass Monkey Run around Charnwood Forest with hundreds of other bikers in early January to raise money for the Rainbow Children's Hospice – or complete it at any time of the year on their own (pick up a route map from staff and a celebratory pin badge after you finish).

Bikes, cars and other wheely good transport options are the (Ford?) focus of several attractions in Leicestershire. Outside of Download, Donington Park lives as a race circuit that's home to the British Motorcycle Grand Prix and the Donington Grand Prix Exhibition, the biggest collection of Grand Prix vehicles in the world.

Get more racing satisfaction at Mallory Park racing circuit at nearby Kirkby Mallory, or for an out-of-this-world trip, the acclaimed National Space Centre just outside Leicester city centre is the country’s biggest attraction devoted to space.

More quietly, Nanpantan Reservoir is a good nearby spot for fishing, and fisheries are at Mallory Park and Charnwood Lake. Also worth a look is Charnwood Forest’s Bradgate Park; look out for the ancient rocks on the hilltop of Old John.
