2018 - Bosworth Hall - 5 Days (AUD0065)
This sleepy little market town lies deep in the heart of Leicestershire's rich countryside. The nearby Bosworth Field is renowned as the site of the decisive battle of the 'War of the Roses', between Richard III and Henry Tudor. Market Bosworth is a pleasant place to visit, with an award-winning fish and chip shop, an excellent tea shop and many old pubs and coaching inns. At the heart of the town is a small market square where regular markets are still held. The surrounding streets are filled with pretty thatched cottages and Georgian houses.
To the east of the town is a large country park, with a small lake and arboretum which is ideal for walks and barbecue picnics. To the west of the town lies the Bosworth Water Trust, a 50-acre leisure park with large lakes for fishing, sailing and water sports. Not far from the town is the Market Bosworth Light Railway. A pleasant steam-train line which runs from Shackerstone Station to Shenton Station. The line was completely restored by the Shackerstone Railway Society in 1970. In the stationmaster's office, you will find an eclectic collection of lamps, levers and other railway memorabilia.
