The stone marking the grave of King Richard lll, who was reburied in the Cathedral is simple, but looks really impressive. The stone weighs 2 tons! The stained glass windows were also of interest.

Just a quick stop off here to see Richard III statue and sit in the cathedral gardens as there was a service going on inside so could not enter. Worth a visit and a shame we couldn’t go inside.
