Learning from home

In the meantime, we have range of Home Learning Resources, including educational games, videos and activities to support pupils with their learning of Medieval history with some Roman themed content coming soon.

Don’t forget to view our facebook page too, which has lots of useful facts and stories as well as inspirational images for art works.

Coronavirus (covid-19) update

Focusing on the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers is our top priority. In line with national guidance and government recommendations we have taken the difficult decision to cancel any events involving the public or large gatherings until further notice. This will mean Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre and 1485 Tithe Barn will be closed with immediate effect.

We hope to resume our Learning offer as soon as is safe.

New school bookings

We are unable to take new school bookings at present as it remains unclear as to when either schools or the site will reopen. We will communicate here and elsewhere when bookings can be taken again.

We look forward to welcoming you back onsite as soon as we can. Please go to https://www.bosworthbattlefield.org.uk/visit-us/educational-visits/ to find out more information to help you plan for your school visit.

Bosworth Battlefield and Heritage Centre is an invaluable resource of national heritage.

The programme is focused on the Battle of Bosworth and its great significance to British history,  and also includes sessions inspired by the discovery of an intriguing Roman Temple site close the Centre. Both have great links to the National Curriculum with relevance to schools and colleges.
