Visit Battlefield 1403, site of the Battle of Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury, Shropshire

Visit the site of the Battle of Shrewsbury in Shropshire and discover how it changed the course of English and French history.


Today Battlefield 1403 is a bustling farm shop, butchery, deli, café and exhibition, but over 600 years ago this was the site of one the bloodiest battles fought on British soil. 

In the visitor centre you’ll learn how the battle, fought between Henry IV and the rebellious Percy family, laid the foundations of the War of the Roses and honed the young Prince Henry’s skills, which would later lead him to victory over the French army at the Battle of Agincourt. 

After visiting the café at Battlefield 1403, walk off one of their delicious cakes or tray bakes with a walk around the boundary of the 100-hectare battlefield.
