Guide-led tour of 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. Get hands-on with the weapons wall, try on armour, shoot the interactive long bow and see the gory practices of a barber surgeon. Explore how the Battlefield was rediscovered in 2010 and compare the fates of Richard and Henry.

This session is led by one of our experience Battlefield Guides.

These are 1 hour sessions and are £2.50 per pupil.

To look round the exhibition you have to book a guide or self-led exhibition session. The self-led exhibition session is £2.00 per pupil and the guide-led tour of the exhibition session is £2.50 per pupil.

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
