On Friday the 8th February 2013 the Leicester Guildhall opened it's doors to the new exhibition:
'Richard III: Leicester's Search for a King'.
This exhibition was opened almost immediately after the announcement that the remains found at the Greyfriars dig were indeed those of King Richard III. The exhibition will run until the new visitor centre is completed and opened to the public.
The Guildhall itself is a very beautiful and historical building, described extremely well on the Leicester City Council website which I have quoted below:
"Leicester is very privileged in having one of the best preserved timber framed halls in the country, dating back six hundred years.
I visited the exhibition when it first opened, and have taken friends over the road to have a look around on a number of occasions since then. I was particularly pleased to have been able to see the facial reconstruction of Richard III close up when it was on display at the exhibition and took a few photos. Unfortunately, the photos are not great quality due to the reflections from the glass display case. However, you certainly get a great idea of what it was like to look at the nearest thing we will ever know to a true likeness of Richard III.
