Details

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 is set within a well appointed visitor centre and beautiful Country Park in the south west of Leicestershire. Self lead or guided walks around the site are amongst one of the highlights, as well a diverse events programme including living history weekends.

Visitors of all ages will find something to enjoy in the exhibition and discover the story behind the most pivotal final moments of the Wars of the Roses that were played out in the landscape not far from the exhibition site and where King Richard III lost his life, crown and throne of England to Henry Tudor.  Inside, you will find 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. The site also offers guided and self-led walks, living history events and a busy events programme throughout the year.
