IMPORTANT UPDATE: King Richard III Visitor Centre COVID-19 (Coronavirus) 20th March 2020

Following the latest government recommendations, we have taken the decision to close the Visitor Centre with immediate effect, for the foreseeable future.

Our first priority is the health and wellbeing of all our visitors, volunteers and staff, and whilst we would love to welcome you to the Visitor Centre, we hope you can understand why we have taken this unprecedented step.

Any advance bookings made directly through the Visitor Centre, for a visit or an event, will have already been refunded directly to you. If you have any questions, please contact us via email: or call 0116 229 4132 (office hours only).

Whilst we can’t share the incredible story of King Richard III with you in person over the coming weeks, we will continue to share it through our social media accounts – Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Visitor Centre again soon; please visit our website and social media for further updates on re-opening. Until then, the whole Visitor Centre team hopes that you and your families and friends keep healthy and safe.
