Monk Bar was built in the 14th Century and is one of four medieval gatehouses forming part of the city wall . In 1992 Monk Bar was converted into the Richard III Museum, which focuses on a modern day imaginary trial of Richard III as the possible murderer of the two Princes in the Tower. The visitor is left to decide whether King Richard is guilty, or innocent. There are three rooms to view; the third one is at the top of a very steep narrow flight of stone steps. Two tiny cells which you are invited to enter, make you realize just how awful it must have been to be held captive there.
