Bosworth Battlefield

Located 2 miles south of Market Bosworth, near the village of Sutton Cheney, this is the place where the wars of the roses ended, with Henry the Seventh seizing the crown from Richard the Third, and beginning the Tudor Dynasty.

Today, you can walk around the fields where the battle took place, and also see the visitor centre, where you can:

  • Walk down a Medieval Street to the Chapel.
  • Discover what it was like to be a soldier.
