Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre

Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre tells the dramatic story of the Battle of Bosworth on Monday 22nd August 1485, which marked a major turning point in English history.

The site tells an internationally important story within the landscape in which the battle took place. The battlefield is now set in the beautiful Leicestershire landscape but on the 22nd August the fields were full of men fighting for either King Richard III or Henry Tudor. Around a thousand men died in two hours of fighting, a figure equitable to the first day on the Somme. Richard III was the last King of England to die in battle and his death signified the beginning of the powerful Tudor dynasty which changed the face of England.
