The main focus on a recent trip to Leicester was all things Richard III and naturally that included a visit to Leicester Cathedral where his remains were reinterred on March 26th 2015. After having been to the Visitor Centre and seen displays on how the remains were discovered (blog post here) we were keen to see his final resting place for ourselves.

I’d been inspired by a photograph I’d seen online to go and see this impressive looking cathedral with its three spires for myself. I’d also read about the tours of the towers that the Cathedral offered, but in the end the changeable weather made me decide to forego looking into that on the day I visited. The first cathedral on the site was founded in 700AD and the spires were completed after the Cathedral had been around for 600 years.
