The Visitor Centre stands on the site of the medieval friary of the Grey Friars where the king’s remains were buried over 500 years ago.
The self-led exhibition enables us to learn more about the King’s life and death – and to understand the huge events that led to his hasty burial and eventual rediscovery. It reveals one of the greatest archaeological detective stories ever told and features the first-ever genome sequencing of ancient DNA.
After free time for lunch, we head into Leicester Cathedral (very short walk) for a thirty minute tour focussed on Richard III. We will then have free time to explore the Cathedral for ourselves or head back to the Visitor centre and shop before heading home.
