Market Bosworth Country Park
This 85 acre country park in Leicestershire contains a lake, a planted arboretum with exotic species, a wildflower meadow and a community woodland. The route takes you through the park to Sutton Cheney and then on to Bosworth Battlefield. This field is the site of the last significant battle of the Wars of the Roses, the civil war that took place in the 15th century.
The Leicestershire Round walking route runs through the park so you can use this path to visit the nearby Bosworth Battlefield Country Park.

The Old Black Horse Inn is located just west of the park. The old pub includes exposed wood beams and an outdoor terrace for warmer weather. They serve high quality dishes and can be found close to the park at 17 Market Place with a postcode of CV13 0LF.
You could also head down to the Ashby Canal at Sutton Cheney Wharf where you'll find the Sutton Wharf cafe. They serve tasty lunches and delicious cakes which you can enjoy in the outdoor seating area next to the water.
The open grassland and parkland trails are ideal for dog walking so you'll probably bump into other owners on your visit. There are several bins dotted around the park too.
