Richard III centre to open next month

TICKETS have gone on sale for the King Richard III Visitor Centre: Dynasty, Death and Discovery in Leicester, which opens on July 26.

The exhibition recounts the life and death of the king, including the events that led to his burial and eventual re-discovery in a Leicester car park in August 2012.

One of the exhibits will be a detailed facial reconstruction Richard III, plus a replica of his skeleton that shows his battle injuries, including the fatal blow.

The announcement of the opening date of the visitor centre follows the recent legal ruling that the king will be re-interred in Leicester Cathedral and not, as many in Yorkshire wanted, in York Minster.

Timed tickets are available now from Prices start at £4.75 for children (three to 15 years), £7.95 for adults, and £21.50 for a family (two adults and two children). A concessionary rate of £7.00 will also be available.
