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.

Journey through medieval England and discover the horrors of medieval warfare and how the Battle of Bosworth unfolded.  Follow the fortunes of four characters: John the Archer, Colette the mercenaries wife, Alice the child &  Lord Thomas Stanley and hear their stories during this turbulent time. Test your strength as an archer, try on some armour, see objects used in the King Richard III reinterment commemorations on 22nd March 2015  and see some real artefacts from the Bosworth Battle, including The Bosworth Boar”.

You can also create your own Henry Tudor or Richard III souvenir bookmark and cast your vote for your favourite King.
