Guide and 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.
*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.

This is what a teacher said after their Guide-led exhibition session ‘We particularly enjoyed being guided around the exhibition….their explanations of the events….really enhanced the children’s (and adults) experience and understanding. We will definitely be re-booking the guided tour again.’ Year 3 Badgerbrook Primary School
