RC 2018 will be held in Leicester, United Kingdom and hosted by the University of Leicester. Located in the Midlands, Leicester is highly accessible from East Midlands Airport, Luton Airport, Birmingham Airport, Stansted Airport and other London airports (see below).

Leicester is notable for being the birthplace of legendary broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough, as well as his brother, the actor and filmmaker Lord Richard Attenborough. Leicester is also the home of the (hugely surprising) 2015/16 Premier League football champions, Leicester City FC.

Founded in 1921, the University of Leicester is world-renowned for both the discovery of DNA fingerprinting in the 1980s by Sir Alec Jeffreys, and more recently the discovery of the remains of King Richard III.
