Explore Richard III's Leicester with a Blue Badge guide

Leicester, Leicestershire

Come along on a Blue Badge guided walk and find out about all of Leicester's many connections to King Richard III.

Starting at Leicester Cathedral, this walking tour is led by an expert Blue Badge Guide and takes you to all the significant sites in Leicester that are associated with King Richard III, the king who lost both his kingdom and his life on the battlefield at nearby Bosworth in 1485.

The route goes past some of the buildings and structures that Richard may have seen or visited during his times in Leicester, such as the medieval Guildhall, the hotel in which he is said to have stayed the night before the battle, the bridge he famously crossed over the River Soar with its associated legend, and his burial site at Grey Friars.
