old coaching inn

Thatched Cottage, Market Bosworth, Leicestershire, England.

The sleepy little market town of Market Bosworth lies deep in the heart of Leicestershire’s rich countryside.

At the heart of the town is a small market square (circa 1285), where regular markets are still held. The surrounding streets are filled with pretty thatched cottages and Georgian houses. There is an award winning fish and chip shop, tea shop and many old pubs and coaching inns.

The nearby Bosworth Field is renowned as the site for the decisive battle of the ‘War of the Roses’, between Richard III and Henry Tudor; who defeated Richard to become Henry VII of England.
