Bring learning out of the classroom and into Leicester’s King Richard III Visitor Centre!

Our educational visits are available all year round, however we encourage groups to book as early as possible to ensure you visit on the day of your choice.

Our exhibition relies on quite a lot of audio and visual elements in telling the story of King Richard III, not all of which might be suitable for some visitors with audio/visual impairments, epilepsy or other special needs. If you are unsure whether the centre would be suitable for your group, please do contact us to discuss your group’s needs, or to arrange a pre-visit.

For further information on our learning programme and to discuss visits for KS4+ classes, non-school groups or if you have any specific learning aims not covered here, please contact our Learning & Interpretation Manager on schools@kriii.com or 0116 229 4133
