about Bosworth Field Visitor Centre
The Bosworth Field Visitor Centre contains a wealth of information, including displays and exhibitions, about the battle which is considered by many to have been the final (others say penultimate) battle of the Wars of the Roses – the Battle of Bosworth Field.
It is worth noting that, until October 2009, the location of Bosworth Field Visitor Centre was thought to have been the site of the Battle of Bosworth Field. The field which was thought to have been the battle site was marked to show the events of the battle. However, in February 2010, historians confirmed that the real site was around a mile away.
The Bosworth Field Visitor Centre plans to create a trail to the real site, but at the time of writing, visitors can only cross it on public paths (ask at the centre).
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours! While we work as hard as we can to ensure the information provided here about Bosworth Field Visitor Centre is as accurate as possible, the changing nature of certain elements mean we can't absolutely guarantee that these details won't become a thing of the past. If you know of any information on this page that needs updating you can add a comment above or now.
