Details

One of the Midlands premier historical sites, Bosworth Battlefield witnessed the death of a King and saw the end of the 30 year power struggle for the throne of England. Was King Richard III, who lost his life and crown at Bosworth, a noble warrior or murdering crookback who ordered the death of the Princes in the Tower? And who was Henry Tudor whose success at Bosworth gave birth to the powerful Tudor dynasty bringing two of our most famous monarchs, Henry VIII and Elizabeth I to the throne?
