Visited here from a boat on the ashby canal. Lovely museum with lots of hands on exhibits. The walk around the battlefield was lovely with various information boards along the way.More

The exhibition is very informative and interesting. The battlefields are beautifully kept. The cafe is slightly overpriced. We were disappointed to have to pay for parking.More

The battlefield itself has of course undergone a lot of changes since back then but worth a walk round if it is a nice day - even just to get context. The visitors centre I found deceptively large - lots of really good history plus...More

I plan on traveling from London to the battlefield then back to London in a day and I have a few questions. Does anyone that you know of run tours ether out of London or Leicester for day trippers like myself? I'd like to visit Leicester and the historic sites there on the same day, am I trying to pack too much into one day or is this doable (If I get an early start)? Thank you all for your help, I'm excited about my visit this summer.

I'm not sure that the exact spot has been attributed yet and is on a private farm somewhere so I don't think it is open as a visitor site as yet. However Ambion Hill is close enough to the encampments and you can walk to Richard's Well. The Visitor Centre may have a map in shop with local public footpaths on but unless anything has changed recently you might need your welly boots to go across a wheatfield. Sorry I can't be much more helpful. However there is a lot of nice walking with history from the site. There is a history trail with armour, weapones and info whcih can be follewed from the Visitor Centre. You could also catch the steam railway fro, Shackerstone to Shenton Station and walk up to Ambion Hill, from where you can see all the fields for miles.

That was meant to be an answer not a question but put it in the wrong place.
