See living history at Bosworth battlefield

Near Market Bosworth, Leicestershire

See a history lesson come to life at the Battle of Bosworth Field in Leicestershire, where King Richard III fought for his crown and lost his life.

Lose yourself within the interactive exhibition, where you can journey through medieval England and witness the horrors of warfare in the Battle Room. Then discover if you would have made a valiant knight by putting on the war armour and trying your hand at shooting an interactive longbow. Just be careful where you point it!

When the battle is over, take a walk to the BFI Research Lab to see how archaeologists found the true location of the Battle, and after all that learning, explore the beautiful country park before relaxing with a good old cup of tea in the historic Tithe Barn restaurant.
