To the north-east of the village lies Carlton Park, a business park that included the headquarters of Alliance & Leicester, who employed over 1,800 people locally. Carlton Park also has a Racquets and Health Club, David Lloyd (formerly Next Generation), which opened in the summer of 2006.[4] Near to the village centre are the Blaby District Council offices.

There are two large GP practices in the old village centre; The Limes Medical Centre and Narborough Health Centre. The village also contains a variety of retail outlets, pubs, restaurants, and other amenities.

Narborough is often split into two distinct parts, the (old) village core to the South and the newer Pastures estate to the north-east. These areas are separated by the B4114 which runs through the middle of the two areas.
Education
At the time of writing, as well as Greystoke Primary School in the village, The Pastures and Red Hill Field are the two other primary schools serving the locality. Pupils from these schools generally continue their education at Brockington College in Enderby, offering education for the 11 – 14 age group.

Leisure
Being a rural area, there are ample footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes in the area. Within a 10-minute drive there is an array of further leisure facilities catering for most interests.

Transport Links
Narborough is situated on or near several major transport corridors. The M1 motorway passes through the east of Narborough, and the Leicester to Birmingham railway line runs beside the River Soar on its way through the village. Coventry Road in the village centre runs along the course of the Fosse Way (Roman road), which then joins back onto the present course of the B4114 link from Birmingham to Leicester.

Narborough is served by Arriva Midlands services 50 and X84 both linking the village with Rugby, Enderby, Croft, Fosse Shopping Park, and Leicester city centre.

Narborough railway station is situated in the village centre and offers an hourly service with South Wigston and Leicester to the north, and Hinckley, Nuneaton and Birmingham in the south and west.

Village Facts
The Empire Stone Works was founded in Narborough in 1900. It specialised in producing pre-cast concrete for cladding, which could be coloured with pigments and hand-finished to match natural stone cills, copings, and cornices. The factory was the largest employer in Narborough, employing over 300 people, and had its own railway sidings. The company ceased trading in 1994, soon after the completion of the MI6 building at Vauxhall Cross which features in many of the later James Bond films.
