This event is no longer available.

Firstly, we will experience a guided walk of the Battlefield Trail from one of Bosworth’s knowledgeable guides who will bring the events of the battle to life through lively interpretation and objects outside in the landscape. This 2 km guided walk, which will last approximately 90 minutes, explores the Battle of Bosworth, the death of King Richard III and the unlikely victory of Henry Tudor. With access to the most up-to-date research and evidence you will learn the very latest information about the battle. 

After lunch we will make our way to meet John the Archer, a costumed archer, who explains the make-up of medieval bows and arrows, the different arrowheads used, and the role of the archer on the battlefield and on the hunting ground. Discover how often archers had to train, how effective the bodkin arrow was against armour and where an archer kept his spare bow string, handle a bow and arrow and imagine you’re an archer on the battlefield. This will last approximately 45 minutes.

After this you will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition centre. There is an additional charge of £6 per person which will be payable on the day. This is an optional extra for those that would like to extend their experience here.

The centre closes at 4pm.
