From Our Editors

Situated in a splendid Victorian building, near the spot where the king's remains were found, the King Richard III Visitor Centre tells the story of the last king from the Plantagenet dynasty. Visitors can get to know facts about his life, reign and battles he fought.

It was great to see where KR3's body was found and we had a very enthusiastic young man, Josh, give us a great talk about the discovery. We found the display upstairs - about what led up to the discovery of the body, and proving that it was really KR3 - very interesting. We didn't enjoy downstairs so much, however, as we thought the film was shown in completely the wrong place (people were constantly walking in front of it) and trying to read about the Plantagenet history was very confusing! It should be simplified and presented in chronological order. All in all we enjoyed our visit and think it is definitely worth visiting.

Great afternoon at the visitor centre. The NCP parking is expensive though, so research in advance alternatives.

The exhibition was undoubtedly one of the best we have ever visited. The venue was excellent, the quality of the displays superb and the degree of interaction available to us was fascinating. The guides were very helpful. Clearly a great deal of thought has been put into making this a brilliant experience for visitors. If you haven’t been, you should go, you will not be disappointed!
