Bosworth Bound

Reading time: < 1 minute...

On one of sunniest days of the year (so far) we headed off to the quaint town of Market Bosworth.

A smooth journey there, although the sat-nav did take us through Hinkley town which slowed things down a tad.

It seemed that the good weather had brought everybody out today! Parking was challenging, but we did have a spot of luck grabbing a space in a pay-and-display just as someone was leaving. Oh yes, very quaint here… a Sunday Market too!

After the quickest of wanders, around this beautiful market town it was time for some light refreshment, where the only place we found that had an empty table was The Black Horse Restaurant. Nice coffee! Next stop? The Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre.

What a find this was! Managed by Leicestershire County Council (LCC), they’d done a grand job with a Visitor Centre, a large restaurant/café, plenty of picnic spots and some nice walks too! Admission price was a very reasonable £8 each.

Welcome!
No idea, but it made a good photo!

For us, the highlight was the Visitor Centre where across multiple galleries there was everything you needed to know about this significant battle in our history.

Making the entry ticket even better value was that it gave FREE entry for the next twelve months – so I think a return visit is definitely in order!

The actual battleground!

A nice touch! This was a memorial to everyone who fought and gave their life in the War of the Roses.

That was a great day out, and we were very impressed with the quality of the multiple galleries dreamed-up by LCC.
