The Cathedral Church of Saint Martin, Leicester, usually known as Leicester Cathedral, is a Church of England cathedral in the English city of Leicester and the seat of the Bishop of Leicester. The church was elevated to a collegiate church in 1922 and made a cathedral in 1927 following the establishment of a new Diocese of Leicester in 1926. The remains of Richard III were buried in the cathedral in 2015 after being discovered nearby. Leicester had the most positive press it had had in years. Visiting his burial place won’t take long, but if you’re interested, the visitor centre is nearby and offers a lot of interesting educational resources about the Richard III and the search for him.
