The King Richard III Visitor Centre tells the story of the extraordinary discovery of King Richard III in a Leicester car park.
Leicester City Council commissioned the new visitor centre for the city, exploring the dynasty, death and discovery of King Richard III.
Located on the site of the grave and within a former grammar school, the project includes elements of renovation and new build seeking to complement the exhibition.
The overriding objective is to create a welcoming visitor attraction that will enhance tourism for the city of Leicester.
The design of the King Richard III Visitor Centre takes into account the importance and sensitivity of the final resting place of a former King of England.
The project has been designed and delivered to not only attract visitors from across the world but also to be a high quality environment.
It uses locally sourced materials and historical references to the former medieval Greyfriars church, which stood on the site at the time of King Richard’s life and death.
This project links with other compatible developments taking place in the Cathedral Guildhall area, making this a key gateway into the heart of Leicester.
