Market Bosworth is a small market town that can trace its history back to a settlement in the Bronze Age. The Battle of Bosworth took place to the south of the town in the village of Upton in 1485. If you take a walk around the town you will find shields and Tudor roses as well as street nameplates decorated with Henry VII's dragon and Richard III's boar in recognition of the Battle. There are also three schools and three churches and with the Country Park, Water Park and Battlefield Line Railway within walking distance there is plenty to do for all ages.
The Parish of Market Bosworth includes the village of Far Coton as well as the settlement of Market Bosworth.
