This Wetherspoon pub is named after William Wygston, several times Mayor of Leicester and a benefactor to the city. The rents from his estate in Wigston supported the hospital he built, where Leicester Grammar School now stands.
This pub does not appear to have any special historical connections. However, the town is an ancient one. Wigston Magna gets its name from 'Viking's Tun' or 'settlement'. The Old English word 'viking' means 'pirate'.
