A Knightly Endeavour – Bosworth Experience Day for 2

July 10 @ 09:30 - 16:30 BST

Do you ever wonder whether you were born in the wrong Century and think wouldn’t it be great if just for the day you could don some shiny armour and pretend to be a Knight of the realm?

Why not try out this wonderfully bespoke and unique experience day at Bosworth Battlefield. You’ll meet our humble squire, Jed, who will ready you both for battle in full Knightly regalia. You’ll learn about the armour, its effectiveness and experience first-hand the weight and the length of time it took to prepare for battle.  It certainly could never have been a one person job.

Once in armour, you’ll learn some training and fighting techniques and even get to handle some 15th Century replica weaponry.

You’ll also join one of our experienced Guides for an informative and fun 2 km guided walk exploring the Battle of Bosworth, the death of King Richard III and the unlikely victory of Henry Tudor.

The experience also includes an annual pass to our award winning exhibition as well as a delicious brunch for two in the beautiful setting of our Tithe barn.
