The exhibition takes time to show the strengths and weaknesses of both Richard 3rd and Henry 7th both in battle and in their rule. As well as the exhibition there are walks and activities for children to enjoy.

I plan on traveling from London to the battlefield then back to London in a day and I have a few questions. Does anyone that you know of run tours ether out of London or Leicester for day trippers like myself? I'd like to visit Leicester and the historic sites there on the same day, am I trying to pack too much into one day or is this doable (If I get an early start)? Thank you all for your help, I'm excited about my visit this summer.
