The cathedral is quite small, but interesting, and it was nice to see the place where Richard III was re-buried. I was interested to hear about the reburial, but unfortunately we had a guide who spent ages telling us all the minutiae of where the...More

Definitely worth a look around, especially you are remotely interested in history and/or Richard iii! A welcoming church with lots of things to enjoy as well as seasonal Easter services.

Made more interesting with the fact Richard 3rd is buried there. A lovely,tranquile setting. Just a small walk from the Richard 3rd visitor centre. We went there first then went along to the cathedral.

A small cathedral which has lots of info about Richard the Third - it is also his burial place (after being moved from the car park across the road!) It is a historic building. It doesn't take long to go around (about 30 minutes if...More
