About

Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre and Country Park is a unique day out for all the family. Re-live this famous turning point in British history. The death of a King and the birth of the all powerful Tudor dynasty.

The NEW Battle of Bosworth Trail is now open.

Bosworth Battlefield is home to a new trail which invites you to discover the Battle of Bosworth whilst enjoying breath-taking views.

The trail comprises of a 1.25 mile (2.2km) walk with audio and visual interpretation about the battle and surrounding area.

Climbing Ambion Hill near the Battlefield Heritage Centre the trail also includes a stunning walk-through sundial which features the thrones of Richard III, Henry Tudor and Lord Stanley. The panoramic view from the sundial provides the opportunity to see the actual battlefield site in the distance, the church of nearby Market Bosworth and other local landscape features.

The multi award winning Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre is best known for its interactive exploration of battles, armour and medieval army life, but this year’s free entry exhibition shows a very different side of medieval life. It looks at the lives of medieval women and will be on display until December 30th 2011

The exhibition, entitled ‘The Medieval Woman – instrument of the Devil, exulted above all angels’, looks at the roles of European women in the Middle Ages.
