Explore the history of King Richard III and the Battle of Bosworth

On this electric bike holiday you visit the atmospheric Bosworth Battlefield, as well as the new King Richard III Visitor Centre in the centre of Leicester. On August 1485 King Richard III was killed in the Battle of Bosworth and his body taken to Leicester, to be put on public display before being buried by the Grey Friars. The exact location of both the battlefield and King Richard's final resting place remained a mystery until the 21st century, when funding was raised to take advantage of modern technology and search for the King's remains.

Remarkably, in 2012 the remains of King Richard III were found under a car park in Leicester. Your holiday will take you through beautiful and varied countryside, offering plenty of opportunities to enjoy the sights of the area. Other highlights of the tour include the National Trust property of Stoneywell, which is a perfect example of the Arts and Crafts Movement.

Please note: As this route takes you into the centre of Leicester, some busy traffic is unavoidable. Please ask for more information or if you would like us to suggest an alternative route.
