THE BOS­WORTH Bat­tle­field Her­itage Cen­tre and Coun­try Park oc­cu­pies the site be­lieved to be that of the Bat­tle of Bos­worth in 1485. King Richard II was killed in what turned out to be the fi­nal bat­tle of the Wars of the Roses, with the crown of Eng­land pass­ing to Henry Earl of Rich­mond who as Henry VII be­came the first Tu­dor king. The vis­i­tor cen­tre has all the in­for­ma­tion about the bat­tle plus a cafe and shop, and there are bat­tle­field trails to walk.
