Richard III: The Final Journey in Leicester

(Please note - this page is best viewed on our desktop site).

Leicester became crucially important to Richard III after Henry Tudor landed in Wales in August 1485.

The king stayed in the city on the night of 20 August before marching out to cut off Henry's progress through the midlands.

Richard's death at Bosworth, along with the recent discovery of his bones, have left a rich legacy in the area.

On 22 March the reburial cortege will pass some of these places - starting at Fenn Lane in Leicestershire before heading into the city.

Below is a map of the planned procession through the city. Click here for the earlier route through the county.
