Self-Led Tours of the Exhibition

The award-winning exhibition brings to life the story of the Battle of Bosworth and this fascinating period of history. Follow the four medieval characters to find out about the lives of those involved, as Richard and Henry battle for the throne of England. Explore how the Battlefield was rediscovered in 2010 and compare the fates of Richard and Henry.

A trail is available for KS1 and KS2 groups. This is an adult-led trail, for the adults to guide the pupils through the galleries.

*We have made some small changes to keep the pupils, adults and the facilitators safe – all costumes, textile objects and activities that include pencils and pens have been removed. But despite these changes, the facilitators will still be delivering an engaging and informative session for the pupils to support their learning back in the classroom, supported by a number of films and other interactives that can be used with stylus’ throughout the exhibition.
