This market town is steeped in history as it was the site of a famous battle that changed the course of Great Britain forever. The nearby Bosworth Field is the site of the decisive battle of the ‘War of the Roses’, where King Richard III was defeated by Henry Tudor in 1485. The victor became Henry VII and established Tudor rule for the next 118 years.
Before the battle, King Richard III stayed in Market Bosworth. While staying at the White Boar Inn, he hid £300, which remained undiscovered until the reign of Elizabeth I.
