Description:
Bosworth Battlefield is run by Leicestershire County Council and is the location of the Battle of Bosworth. The battle, which took place on 22 August 1485, brought an end to 30 years of English civil war, now known as the War of the Roses and saw the infamous King Richard III lose both his life and crown to Henry Tudor.

The Battlefield includes an exhibition telling the story of the battle and looking at its impact on British history. The interactive exhibition has learning and enjoyment at its heart, with eight exciting galleries, including 'Preparing for battle', where visitors can test their skills as a Knight’s Squire and the atmospheric 'Battle Room', where the bloody conflict of 1485 reaches its dramatic conclusion!
