Discover the incredible story of King Richard III, his life, death and discovery in a Leicester car park in 2012.
Using great storytelling, beautiful design and 21st century technology, the Visitor Centre tells the fascinating and moving story of the king’s life and death, and reveals one of the greatest archaeological detective stories ever told.
The Centre stands on the site of the medieval friary of the Grey Friars where the king’s remains were buried over 500 years ago. Visitors are able to see the original site of King Richard’s burial, preserved now in a quiet, respectful setting and with a contemplative atmosphere.
The Centre is very close to Leicester Cathedral where King Richard III was re–interred in March 2015.
