  • This church and the Tomb are dramatic. A lot of ingenuity and hard work has produced this.
  • Beautiful Cathedral, with the new memorial for Richard III inside, made from local stone. Just across the courtyard is the recently found tomb under the car park of Richard III, see my photos. Excellent stories, well told and well presented with considerable dignity as befitting a King.
  • Lovely day, lovely place. Car parking is quite expensive
  • Quite a site to see, Richard III, final resting place. To be fair, Goggle Maps will take you there.
  • Situated in a nice, quaint little corner of Leicester it made for a nice detour popping over to the cathedral to see the tomb of Richard III before having lunch in Leicester. There are people around who will tell you some of the history of the cathedral/tomb too.
