Owner description: The new King Richard III Visitor Centre is in Leicester city centre, opposite Leicester Cathedral. It has been created around the poignant spot where King Richard III's remains were buried for more than 500 years. Using storytelling, design and 21st century technology, visitors can discover the fascinating and moving story of the King's life and death, and one of the greatest archaeological detective stories ever told

Richard III has had a difficult history and I think, having visited the battlefield heritage centre and this centre deserves to rest in peace.

This is a good exhibition about the search for and almost unbelievable finding and exhumation of King Richard III's remains. There are some interactive parts to the display and you can, apparently, get a joint ticket to the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage centre. To see his final resting place, you only have to go across the road to Leicester Cathedral.

As a huge Richard III fan, one of my main reasons for traveling to the UK was to visit Leicester and the the visitor center. I was not disappointed! The multi-media approach and the helpful volunteers throughout the museum made for a memorable experience. It is appropriate for both visitors who know a lot about RIII and the history and for those who have little or no knowledge. Highly recommend!

We went to this exhibition expecting to learn more about the Supergrass song. Initially, we were very disappointed, but it turned out to be an excellent showcase about an historic King.
We learned a great deal, and would definitely recommend a visit.
4 stars from us. We would have given 5 if they had played the Supergrass song.
