Our exhibition uses quite a lot of audio and visual material to tell 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 Visitor 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
