KING RICHARD III Visitor Centre

King Richard III Visitor Centre
KING RICHARD III Visitor Centre

The Richard III Visitor Centre tells the story of Richard III, including the background to the 15th century civil war known as the Wars of the Roses. But, mostly, it tells the incredible story of the search for and discovery of Richard's remains under a car park, where they had lain since being buried hastily more than 500 years earlier, the identification of those remains and how the king died. This is a museum that is as much about amazing science as it is amazing history.
