The local area guide to living in Market Bosworth

Home to one of England’s most epic battles: the Wars of the Roses. The birthplace of the Tudor dynasty and an area forever associated with one of the biggest struggles for the English Throne. Market Bosworth is historic to say the least.

The little town and civil parish nestled amidst the unspoilt, undulating countryside of Leicestershire boasts not only a colourful past, but a playground for outdoor enthusiasts. Market Bosworth Country Park (acres of lush green land for you to leisurely stroll through) and Market Bosworth Water Trust (a leisure park with lakes and man-made golden beaches) are two notable venues worth visiting –as is the breathtaking beauty of the Peak District, which is also situated nearby.

After merging with the Hinckley district in 1974 to become Hinckley and Bosworth, the sleepy town offers its residents and visitors the chance to transport back in time via two mediums: the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre (the site of the notorious battle) and the steam train line which runs through the luscious countryside from Shackerstone to Shenton station.

It also offers residents attractive proximities. Leicester, Nottingham, Birmingham and the Big Smoke are all within easy reach from Market Bosworth. Therefore, the small town is home to a considerable commuter community who are inevitably seduced by the historic charm and tranquillity of this gem of a town.

Information about the local residents

Over the centuries, Market Bosworth was home to a few notable residents, the most famed, perhaps, is the Dixie family. Their legacy remains intact thanks to their grand stately home, Bosworth Hall, which is now a luxury hotel and the Dixie Grammar School – two major sites of interest in the town.

According to the 2011 Census, over 2000 people permanently reside in Market Bosworth. A majority of individuals who live in the ancient town come seeking a quieter lifestyle, a gorgeous thatched property – preferably along the picturesque canal side – and easy access to other cities. Here, you’ll find a mixture of professionals, young families and couples wishing to start a family living in either detached or semi-detached houses.

Nearby schools

Market Bosworth is graced with three excellent schools. St Peter’s Church of England Primary Academy educates 4-11 year olds and currently has 647 pupils on its roll. The institute is consistently praised by Ofsted for its supportive learning environment and pupil achievements.

The Market Bosworth School also received praise from Ofsted, who awarded them an ‘Outstanding’ rating back in 2011. The secondary school fosters pupil progression, which is reflected in the results students leave with at the end of their education.

Another popular option with locals is the Dixie Grammar School. An independent day boarding institute which teaches pupils from the age of 3 to 18. The school boasts outstanding academic achievements – 94% of students achieve 3 or more A Levels – and a strong yet challenging curriculum.

Getting around

As Market Bosworth is a relatively small parish, residents often choose to walk or cycle to their desired destination. But as the parish is a commuter town, Market Bosworth tends to empty out each weekday morning as many make the frantic rush-hour dash to work.

Unfortunately, the station in the parish closed down as it was badly damaged and is now part of the Heritage Battlefield Line Railway. Though there are plans to restore it, commuters have to rely on their trusty car to get them to work and back. There is also a bus service – 153 Arriva – which takes commuters and locals to Leicester and the surrounding towns and villages en route.

Local shops

The pretty Market Square is where you will find the largest concentration of shops (name-brand and independent), boutiques and pubs. The square is also the setting for the weekly food market where you can mingle with the locals as well as pick up goods.

The town’s three pubs – The Dixie Arms Hotel, The Red Lion and The Black Horse – are popular stomping grounds with locals and offer you the chance to get to know your neighbours better. The Batter of Bosworth, an award-winning fish and chip shop and the talk of the town, should then be your next mandatory pit stop.

For more shopping alternatives and entertainment complexes, Leicester and Birmingham are a mere drive away. Both boast superior shopping centres with an array of stores and eateries as well as a cinema.
