Details

One of the Midlands premier historical sites, the 1485 battle of Bosworth witnessed the death of King Richard III and the end of the 30 year power struggle for the throne of England. Was King Richard a noble warrior or murdering crookback who ordered the death of the Princes in the Tower? And who was Henry Tudor whose success at Bosworth gave birth to the powerful Tudor dynasty bringing two of our most famous monarchs, Henry VIII and Elizabeth I to the throne?

Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre is a colourful multi award winning interactive exhibition telling the story of the Battle of Bosworth, its place in the Wars of the Roses and the transition to the Tudor age, as well as the re-discovery of the battlefield through archaeological investigations. The exhibition offers a range of interpretation, hands-on elements and stories from those who were there, to help you understand medieval life and times, as well as what it would have been like to fight in one of the armies. It is set within a well appointed visitor centre and beautiful Country Park in the south west of Leicestershire.

For group visitors we are happy to organise private guided tours with one of our knowledgeable Battlefield Guides, as well as a range of other colourful historical living history sessions such as the Bosworth Soldier, Barber Surgeon, Medieval Medicine and others, led by experienced historical interpreters.

The 1485 Tithe Barn restaurant offers a variety of refreshments and the well-stocked Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre shop has a great range of souvenirs, gifts and books.

The Battlefield Centre site is fully accessible and includes a lift from the Exhibition Galleries to the Shop and has a free of charge Mobility Scooter and 2 Manual Wheelchairs available for the use of visitors - (pre booking recommended).
