5 Days Half Board by Coach

Capturing the imagination of a nation, the remains of King Richard III – the last Yorkist King of England, whose death at the Battle of Bosworth effectively ended the fabled War of the Roses – were remarkably discovered beneath a car park in Leicester in 2012. Now at rest in the grand setting of Leicester Cathedral, we discover the somewhat chequered story of Richard, retrace the footsteps of the battle and include a visit to Warwick Castle too!
