Project details
Town: Leicester

A new public space large enough to host outdoor events for up to 800 people has been created as part of the project. Included within the gardens are flower beds, trees and lawn areas, seating and a water feature. A statue of Richard III has been moved from Castle Gardens, restored and cleaned and placed at the centre of the Cathedral Quarter project closer to the Leicester car park where his body was found buried.

At the other end of the gardens is Towards Stillness, a sculpture comprising steel plates which tell the story of Richard’s time in Leicester from the Battle of Bosworth to the discovery of his grave in 2012.
