External designs for a Richard III visitor attraction will be unveiled in Leicester's Guildhall later today by the city's Mayor, Peter Soulsby.

The centre, which will be located in the former Alderman Newton's Grammar School on St Martin's Place, Leicester, is expected to open next spring. The King's remains were discovered in a car park in Leicester last year.
