Leicester is one of the oldest cities in England, with a long history that goes back at least two thousand years. It is in this area that a native Iron Age settlement was encountered by the Romans at the site that seems to have developed in the second or the first centuries, BC. Little is known about this ancient settlement or the condition of the River Soar at that time, although roundhouses from that era were found and have been excavated and seem to have clustered along within about a 20-acre piece of the east bank of the Soar above its confluence with the Trent.

There is plenty to do during your vacation stay at Mallory Meadows. Leicester is the largest city in the East Midlands and has made international news in 2012 when the body of King Richard III was discovered underneath a car park. King Richard had been slain in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth Field, only a short few miles west, and was buried hastily at an abbey, which has long since been defunct. In 2015 King Richard was given a proper burial at the Leicester Cathedral, where you can now view his tomb. You can visit the Richard III tomb at the King Richard III Visitor Center.

The last Plantagenet monarch was immortalized as a villain by Shakespeare, killed at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485. The King's body was then paraded 15 miles into Leicester and unceremoniously buried at Greyfriars Friary. The Friary was later demolished during the Reformation and by the 20th century, the burial site in the present day had become a car park. The search for Richard III’s body began in August 2012, and within weeks the King's remains were rediscovered, being easily identified by scoliosis in his spine. The visitor center at the former car park maps out King Richard’s life and death, and details both the hunt for his body and the genome sequencing of his ancient DNA to help ensure the archaeologists had found the right man.
