Loughborough is an ideal location for tourists. Many interesting destinations can be quickly accessed from there. This twin town of Schwäbisch Hall is easy to reach via the East-Midlands airport. The train to London takes 2 hours, a drive to the sea (approx. 120 km) is as easy. The Beacon Hill provides an excellent view across the town. Bradgate Park including its old trees and the castle ruin, the birthplace of lady Jane Grey, is a centre of attraction.

The twinning committee of Loughborough is a major support of the twinning, organising trips of citizens to Schwäbisch Hall every other year. Hall's Friendship Association Loughborough takes its turn to travel to Loughborough every other year, with citizens from Hall joining.
