Leicester is an ancient town, dating from Roman times. It has a rich heritage of buildings and was particularly prosperous in Victorian times. It shot into the national news in 2012 when the body of Richard III was found under a car park. A state- of-the-art visitor centre was opened opposite the Cathedral where he is now buried. Richard III will be our focus in the morning. In the afternoon, members of Leicester Victorian Society will lead us on a tour of the impressive 19th-century city centre. Trip leader: John Dixon
