King Richard III reinterment accommodation

Sunday, 22nd March 2015

The Dixie Arms Hotel is perfectly situated for anyone wanting to view the cortege of King Richard III mortal remains.

The cortege will visit Dadlington as some of the battle-dead are buried in the churchyard of St James' the Greater. Sutton Cheney has been chosen because it is believed that King Richard took his final Mass at St James' church on the eve of the battle.

The Bishop of Leicester, the Rt Revd Tim Stevens, will then lead a short ceremony at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre in the early afternoon. The cortege will then go on to Market Bosworth, Newbold Verdon and Desford as it makes its way back to Leicester.
