Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not a lot to see other than the monument and the information relating to the landscape where the battle took place.
There are 2 car parks, the first one is approx .5 0f a mile from the site, however there is a closer one nearer to the foot of the monument.

You still need to walk up a slight gradient to reach the monument.

Easily understood by lots of information easily showing where the armies were and why some floundered and others won the day. It may have been very different if Huntley stayed ……
See the field from both perspectives, with the battlefield being all. Wear good boots for muddy conditions.

We had visited the battlefield in the mid 1980's. Since then the site is better described by way of information boards etc. The field has been planted with wild flowers and some easy to walk paths. From the information provided it is easy to work out the events in this battle which is often forgotten for its importance in our history.
The monument is dedicated to the dead of both sides and is respectful to both sides.
There are some other attractions in this beautiful area.

I thought this site is very well presented. It's not easy to tell the story of such an important and tragic battle in an interesting and evenhanded way. While it was all a very long time ago the dead deserve to be given their due respect.
Depending on how active you are and how long you're prepared to spend there are well kept information boards all around the site.
Well done to the locals for the Information Centre in a phone box.

Bit of an anti-climax, Only a large memorial marking the site and a few boards with the history of the battle.
On arrival go past the first parking space as there is another at the foot of the hill leading to the memorial. Saves you a good 5 minutes walking before you tackle the short climb up the hill.
Great views over the area of the battle field.

My Partner Karen and Myself went to Flodden Fields, Branxton, to see the Battle Field site between The English against The Scottish 9th September 1513, The Battle was a Victory to The English with The death of King James V and Lords, Earls, and Knights from Scotland, I have found family on both sides in my family tree on Ancestry, My only gripe was that the Battle site was not well sign posted in the field and The Monument is about half a mile away, In a Battle that cost many people there lives from both Nations, it should be better kept

Interesting interpretive signs along the ‘battlefield trail’ tell the story of the battle.
The phone box ‘visitor centre’ also has interesting information.

The site of the 1513 Battle of Flodden and a decisive defeat for the Scottish army. I can still remember much of the battle from my history lessons, although there are information boards for those less familiar with Anglo-Scots history. The writing and diagrams are informative and give a really good sense of what happened on that day. The marshy ground that hampered the advance of the Scottish army is fortunately now drained. I’d hate to walk through that on the trek up to the Flodden Memorial on Piper's Hill, overlooking the site of the battle.

There’s a monument to both the Scottish and English casualties where the English army was positioned. From that vantage point, it’s hard to imagine why the Scots army would advance down from their advantageous position to attack uphill to the English.

The site is out of the way, but there’s a car park which is great as it means a place to park while going for a walk around the countryside.

Access to the battlefield can be found at many spots. We went to Braxton and past the church and parked at the monument. It's very atmospheric and you can select from a few walks if you want to. The monument has a path for disabled and stairs.
