King Richard III Visitor Centre Leicester

Youíve read about the King under the carpark! Now join us to see the exhibition. In August 1485 King Richard III was killed at the Battle of Bosworth, and buried by the Grey Friars, a Franciscan Holy order, in their friary church. What was the historical background? Was he as bad as Shakespeare maintained? And how did archaeologists discover his body? Join us in June to find out more!
