Corporate events and private hire

The Visitor Centre is available for corporate events and private hire. Ideally situated in the heart of the city centre, it is home to an award-winning exhibition which tells the story of King Richard III, his life, death and discovery in a city car park.

A range of events and occasions can be arranged at the Centre, from private tours with drinks to meetings, conferences and canapés receptions.

The King’s Suite is the primary venue within the Visitor Centre. Formerly the school library, natural light is abundant and the room has plenty of Victorian character with wooden floors, original windows and high ceiling – perfect for conferences, meetings and receptions.

The King’s Suite is air conditioned, with blackout facilities and AV equipment (projector, screen and laptop) is available for use.

Our Daily Delegate Rate includes room hire from 9am – 5pm; use of AV equipment – projector, laptop, screen and laser pointer; conference pads and pencils; admission to King Richard III Visitor Centre. Refreshments included in the rate: tea, coffee, bottled water and biscuits served on arrival, with lunch and mid-afternoon and a sandwich lunch served with fruit platter and homemade cake.

In addition to a DDR, half-day, 7-11 breakfast and hourly rates are available and we can also offer room hire only, AV hire and refreshments separately.

Reception package prices start from £16.00 per person and we can accommodate between 20 and 100. Find out more.

We can also arrange exclusive out-of-hours tours with refreshments for between 10 and 50 guests, from £10.00 per person. Find out more.
