The history that surrounds this area is just fascinating and the walk is beautiful. If you get the chance to visit I suggest you do!
You will need sturdy and comfortable walking boots to give ankle support, the path can be uneven in a few parts, especially alongside the road. Allow a couple of hours to get around. The information boards are excellent but a few simple benches along the way would not go amiss for the less nimble. It is a good all-round tour... 更多
Interesting walk, informative information boards, It's a decent walk, went in soft shoes (my mistake) you really need a good pair of walking shoes/boots, would suggest a couple of strategically positioned park benches or something similar for persons of a certain age (such as myself) to have a breather, Don't go on a Monday, The pub's shut.
My (adult) son and I did the battlefield walk with one of the guides from the Towton Battlefield Society. I recommend doing this, our guide Chris Murphy have us a real five star tour.

This is the battle site has a very nice walk and some nice information boards, but TBH the best way to visit this battlefield is on one of the guide tours provide by the Townton battlefield society.
Very poignant place to visit. Easy parking in roadside lay-by. There is a circular walk which passes through the village of Towton with its very good pub, the Rockingham Arms. The information boards are very good and well worth reading, adding to the atmosphere of this special place. Also, lovely views to enjoy. Well worth a detour.
We drove to Towton from Lancashire after reading about the battle that took place there. The battlefield has a marker and an information plaque....driving by you would barely know it was there. A shame really because so many people lost their lives there.
If you are interested in history you will find all the information re the Battle of Towton as you walk around. Very clearly illustrated. If history isnt your thing this makes a fabulous walk or a run.
