Leicester Cathedral will close on 3rd January 2022 until 29 September 2023 when they hand over the site to their contractors in order for their new Heritage Learning Centre to be built. It is expected that the centre will open in early 2024.
Obviously this will impact anyone wishing to visit King Richard's tomb.
The Cathedral have said that they would love to welcome as many Ricardians as possible for a last visit before the closure - see the opening times.
