Celebration Guided Walk


Celebration Guided Walk

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre with a longer and more detailed Guided Walk around the local area. Follow in the footsteps of one of Britain’s most famous monarchs by visiting the sites King Richard III stayed and prayed at during that fateful August of 1485.

This enjoyable walk will be led by two of our experienced Battlefield Guides and as you walk, they will regale you with tales of the historic Battle of Bosworth, King Richard III’s demise, and the remarkable triumph of Henry Tudor.

Highlights will include: traversing across the actual site of the battlefield, the locations of Richard’s and Stanley’s camps, Dadlington where some of the dead are believed to be buried, Shenton Hall, Stoke Golding church, Shenton Station, and the Ashby canal.

The walk will be approximately 6 hours in duration and will cover 12km. A reasonable level of fitness is recommended.

There will be a variety of terrain types during the walk including gravel paths, tarmacked roads/footpaths, and grass fields. Please wear sensible footwear and appropriate clothing.

Please bring your own lunch and refreshments – there may be opportunities to purchase additional food and refreshments during the walk, but this is not guaranteed.

Suitable for people aged 12+. Under 18s must be accompanied by an Adult. Unfortunately, this walk is not suitable for dogs.

Concession*: £20
