October Half Term
Until 29th October you can take part in our Medieval Quest and learn about the king’s life, his death and the discovery of his remains. There’s also the chance to design and make your own heraldic shield to take away and dress up as a medieval monk, a king or queen, a prince or princess!

In addition to meeting the knight and dressing up, there’s the incredible story of King Richard III to discover, including seeing the place where the king’s remains lay undiscovered in a car park for over 500 years.

Until Friday 27th October the Visitor Centre will be open for extended hours, opening from 10am until 5pm (Sundays 10am – 4pm).
