Bosworth Battlefield


Bosworth Battlefield

The Bosworth Battlefield tells the story of the Battle of Bosworth (1485), where King Richard III fought and lost his life and crown to Henry Tudor, leading to the very beginning of the powerful Tudor dynasty!

The Battle of Bosworth was the last clash of the wars of Roses - a series of wars for the control of the throne of England, a battle where a highly skilled King, approximately 15,000 men and about 140 cannons lost to about 5,000 men on 22 August 1485 has kindled interest for decades. The Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre tells the horrors of this medieval warfare with interactive and hands-on exhibitions, guide walks, exciting learning sessions, camps, theatre, and seasonal/ad-hoc events. A must see is the annual Bosworth Medieval Festival held every summer. 

Visitors can also explore the picturesque Bosworth Battlefield Country Park. The contemporary Heritage room and the medieval Tithe Barn are ideal venues for hosting small and large gatherings –including conferences and celebratory events. The gift shop at the Bosworth Heritage centre sells a wide range of gifts and souvenirs suitable for all ages, from pocket money items to bespoke merchandise.

The centre and county park are opened all year and is wheelchair accessible.  See their website for the latest timetable, fares and events.
