Suit of armour at Richard III Experience at Monk Bar

About

The JORVIK Group’s newest attraction invites you to step foot into the historic Monk Bar to discover The Richard III Experience.

Explore the life of the last Plantagenet King as he struggled for the throne and power during his short reign.

Experience his mighty moments of battle, with multimedia presentations, and displays of the authentic medieval weapons and armour used to fight his opponents during the bloody War of the Roses.

Discover the grisly facts of Richard’s rule in our Medieval camp, with gory facts provided by ‘Horrible Histories’ author Terry Deary. Located within the City Walls, and visited by Richard III himself, now you can truly follow in the footsteps of the Yorkist King!

Both the Richard III and Henry VII Experiences are located in ancient Bars of York’s city walls.

Access to these venues is extremely limited and due to the historic nature of the buildings and their location, there is no wheelchair access available.

The external and internal stairs within both attractions are steep and visitors with mobility needs may find them difficult to navigate.

Please call 01904 615505 to discuss your access requirements.

There is more information on access on our website

Please note: there are currently no toilet facilities at either attraction. Public toilets are located a short distance from both the Richard III and Henry VII Experiences.
