Richard III & Henry VII Experiences

About the Richard III & Henry VII Experiences

The Richard III Henry VII Experiences are two unique but strongly related museums situated in the gateways to York, so in actual fact they are on our Guided Tour route. They are related in the sense that Henry Tudor defeated Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth. 

Richard III was the last Plantagenet King who ruled for just 2 years before the Battle of Bosworth.  He had to endure through the rule of Henry Tudor who defeated him in a struggle for England’s crown. 

The Richard III Experience is situated in Monk Bar on the first floor. 

Henry VII was the fist Tudor King of England ruling for some 24 years after defeating Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth.  His early reign became unsteady after the murder of the Earl of Northumberland which prompted a revolt by the peasants in York. 

The Henry VII Experience is situated in Micklegate Bar on the first floor.
