We encourage all teachers to make a free pre-visit to the site. Please contact us in advance to arrange your visit, by calling 01455 290429 or emailing bosworth@leics.gov.uk. All educators are very welcome to bring up to 3 children and 1 adult for FREE with them as part of the pre-site visit.

Activities before during and after your visit

The sessions on site will engage and educate, but we do recommend you do some pre-visit learning about the relevant topics. 

Please also let us know if there is anything particular that your class would like to cover during your time at Bosworth.

We really value your feedback, which allows us to give praise where it is due and work to further improve our offer as necessary, so please do talk to your class and return the completed evaluation form after your visit.
