Close to the actual field of battle - which is as nondescript as most ploughed fields - is the visitor centre. Well worth a trip, if only to pull on the weight they have installed inside which graphically demonstrates the strength of Henry V's archers. It is a real heave, and when you consider they were loosing arrows at a rate of twenty to thirty a minute, you get a sense of their tremendous power. The field of battle is well displayed, and the conditions of the time shown in all their mud-laden glory. Probably worth giving Bernard Cornwell's eponymous book a read beforehand to get a real feel.
