The government has confirmed that Leicester sits within the Tier 3 category of coronavirus restrictions which unfortunately means that all indoor attractions and museums must close. The Visitor Centre will therefore remain closed until restrictions are eased.
The Visitor Centre is open every day except Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
Monday to Friday and Sunday: 10am – 4pm
Saturday: 10am – 5pm
Our ticket prices are:
Adult (16+ Years) £9.25
Child (5 – 15 Years) £4.75
Family (2 adults and 2 children) £23.00
Over 60s, Student £8.30
Children aged 4 and under are admitted free of charge but you will still need to obtain a ticket for them, on arrival at the Visitor Centre.
It will take you about 90 minutes to get around the Visitor Centre but of course your visit may be longer or shorter depending on how long you have or how long you wish to spend here. Last admission is 90 minutes before the Visitor Centre closes.
Our White Boar Café serves sandwiches, home made soup, tasty cakes and hot and cold drinks, with outside seating available in good weather.
The Visitor Centre gift shop stocks a range of King Richard III-related gifts and books to suit all budgets. It is possible to visit the shop without paying for admission.
Full priced tickets are valid for a year from purchase and can be used to make return visits on any day the Centre is open, up to a year after the date of purchase. Complimentary, discounted and school visit tickets are only valid on the day of first use and cannot be re-used.
As one of the conditions of the annual ticket, you will be asked to sign your ticket on the day of purchase and may be asked to show proof of signature on subsequent visits.
