Combine a visit to two or more venues in Leicester City Centre for a full day’s itinerary, here are a few of our suggested joint visits:
KRIII Visitor Centre, Leicester Cathedral & Guildhall
Combine a visit to the King Richard III Visitor Centre, Leicester Cathedral and the Guildhall for a full day of learning about King Richard III and life in medieval Leicester.
These three attractions are all within a few metres of each other, around the Cathedral gardens in a largely pedestrianized area of Leicester city centre, which makes moving between the three sites easy and safe.
Cost per pupil £4 (plus a donation to the Cathedral)
KRIII Visitor Centre, Guildhall & self-led Walking Trail
Combine a visit to the King Richard III Visitor Centre and the medieval Guildhall with a walking trail around Leicester to learn more about its medieval history.
The Guildhall and the KRIIIVC are a few minutes walk apart, separated by the Cathedral gardens. The self-led walking trail takes you to further spots in central Leicester which recall the city’s medieval past and what it would have looked like to Richard over 500yrs ago.
Cost per pupil £4
The Trial of Richard III
Visit the King Richard III Visitor Centre to learn all about one of England’s most famous Kings, and then visit Leicester’s Guildhall to learn about crime and punishment through the ages, and put King Richard III on trial!
Leicester’s Guildhall is a few minutes walk from the KRIIIVC. The Guildhall is one of the best preserved timber framed halls in the country, dating back six hundred years. The building has had many uses and lives. Originally built in about 1390 as a meeting place, it was also often used as a courtroom and later a Jury Room was created above the Mayor’s Parlour.
