VISIT TUESDAY 24 SEPTEMBER 2019

KING RICHARD III VISITOR CENTRE, LEICESTER and LEICESTER CATHEDRAL

 

King Richard III died fighting Henry Tudor in the Wars of the Roses, at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.  He was buried in the medieval friary of Greyfriars.  Over the years the friary disappeared and lately a car park was made over the site. The exhibition  reveals one of the greatest archaeological detective stories ever told, including the first ever genome sequencing of ancient DNA. We will see the very place of the king’s hasty burial over 500 years ago. 

After lunch we have a tour of the cathedral where our last Plantagenet King has his final beautiful and dignified resting place.
