King Richard VII Visitor centre – The exhibition tells the much debated story of the king’s life and times in a medieval England racked by civil strife during the Wars of the Roses, leading to the story of the Battle of Bosworth, where the king was slain defending his crown after a now-infamous betrayal, and his body taken to Leicester for burial. The exhibition also tells the astonishing modern-day story of the research, where archaeology, science and painstaking analysis led to the discovery and identification of the king’s long-lost remains.
Leicester Cathedral – Leicester Cathedral lies at the heart of Leicester’s old town. From the fine stained glass to the story and tomb of King Richard III, explore over 900 years of history in this peaceful and beautiful building.
