Summary

Hero or Villain?

The dramatic discovery of the skeleton of Richard III beneath a Leicester car park in 2012 was the most exciting archaeological find of the 21st century (so far!) and made news around the world. This incredible find also reignited the great debate about Richard’s personal character: was he a murderer who slew his own nephews, the ‘little princes’, in the Tower of London, or an honourable man who did his duty in an age of unprecedented conflict and upheaval, known to us as the Wars of the Roses.

This wide-ranging tour of all the significant surviving sites linked with Richard takes in battlefields, castles, cathedrals and churches culminating in a visit to the King’s striking new tomb. Led by top medieval historian Dr Michael Jones, this tour is a must, not only for Richard’s fans and foes, but for anyone interested in one of English History’s most tragic, bloody and colourful epochs – our very own ‘Game of Thrones’.

Tour highlights:

  • Visit Fotheringhay church and the remains of the castle where Richard III was born in 1452
  • Journey into the beautiful Yorkshire Dales in search of sites connected with the young Richard III
  • Explore the King Richard III Visitor Centre and Bosworth battlefields
