Great Glen is a village and civic parish in the county of Harborough, Leicestershire, two miles south of Oadby. The civil parish had a population of 3,662 in the 2011 census. Leicester City Centre is approximately seven miles to the northwest.

Its name derives from early Iron Age settlers using the Celtic word glenno, meaning valley, and comes from the Great Glen being located partly within the Valley of Sence. The large part is intended to differentiate the village from Glen Parva.

In 1751, the Sence river was built by a turnpike bridge, as part of a route for coach traffic from Leicester to London. The Pug & Greyhound pub (The Old Greyhound) and The Crown were initially coaches inns built shortly after the new road opened. This road was later developed into the A6 and in 2003, the bypass was opened around the village. The Midland Mainline runs south from the A6 and previously had a station serving the village in its closest position.

Leicester Grammar School was built on land in Mount Farm, Great Glen. There are two other schools in the village, St Cuthberts C of E Primary, which is fed into local state schools in nearby Kibworth and in the city of Market Harborough. An independent school, Stoneygate School, has also had its site at Great Glen. Its pupils won Best Junior Choir in the 2005 BBC Songs of Praise school choir competition.

The Great Glen was a centrepiece of a multi-estate Anglo-Saxon early period. The settlements comprising this estate were: Great and Little Stretton, Wiseow, Newton Harcourt, Fleckney, and Kilby. These parishes form the minimum extent of the estate, which generally follows the Sence river, the Glen itself probably taking its name either from the earlier English River-name of Glen, or Glennos meaning Valley.

It has been impossible to securely determine.

Glen entered the records for the first time in A.D. 849, when Alhun, Bishop of Worcester, went tarrying there with nine of his clergymen, issuing a charter giving lands in Worcestershire to King Beorhtwulf of Mercia. The medieval history of Glen is described by John Nichols in his History of Leicestershire. In the 16th century, Henry Grey, 1st Duke of Suffolk, the father of Lady Jane Grey, became the manor-lord. After his execution for treason, his land was taken from him by the Crown.

After the battle of Nasby in 1645, in the English Civil War, the Great Glen was host to a party of Cromwellian soldiers pursuing a number of the Royalists (who had been defeated) cavalry. They were later joined by the rest of the Army, who camped there for an evening, then marched on to Leicester. Some of these soldiers camped at a church, where they caused a lot of damage (such as breaking all of the windows), some of which evidence is still visible.

There are five street names in the village which commemorate these events: Cromwells Way, Nasby Way, Ruperts Way, Edgehill Close and Halford Close.
