4th August @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Social Outing – Bosworth Field and the Richard III Centre in Leicester.
The course of English history was forever changed in 1485 at Bosworth Field in Leicestershire when Richard Plantagenet was killed by the forces of Henry Tudor. Richard was the last English King to die in battle. In case anyone missed all the publicity surrounding the discovery of his remains beneath a car park in Leicester a few years ago, this is an opportunity to catch up.
In the morning we will visit Bosworth Field taking in a guided walking tour before pausing for lunch. In the afternoon we will go on to the Richard III visitors Centre in the heart of Leicester. A presentation here will be followed by a museum visit, after which we will move on to the Cathedral across the road where the tomb of Richard can be seen.
If time allows, and at your own speed, just a few streets away, one of the best preserved timber framed halls in the country, the Medieval Guild Hall.
Exact details still to be determined. Do please let me know your interest using the email address further down the page.
