King Richard III Centre opens
More than 100,000 people are expected to visit the £4m King Richard III Centre, which has opened in Leicester.
In a project delivered for Leicester City Council, architects Maber have transformed Alderman Newton’s School on St Martin’s Place into a visitor centre telling the story of the king’s life, his brutal death at Bosworth Field in 1485 and the rediscovery of his grave.
The Victorian Gothic school building was refurbished to create two floors of exhibition space and a new covered area allowing visitors access to the grave in which Richard’s remains were discovered. The project includes a new courtyard garden, glass entrance hall, viewing balcony, café and visitor entry.
The centre, which is expected to bring in more than £4.5m to the local economy in the first year, includes the King’s grave, a reconstruction of the monarch’s head and a 3D print of the King’s remains.
