We wondered about a visit to Warwick Castle as we are interested in history, but after reading the TA reviews, decided against it. Instead, we chose to visit the Lord Leycester Hospital and it proved to be the best thing we could possibly have done. One of the brethren spent a good 45 minutes with us giving us a history...

We stumbled on this by accident and throughly enjoyed our visit. The architecture was lovely as was the member of the brethren who explained about the Hospital.

A wooden-structured large building, easy to find and very interesting. Visited in early May 2015 and the 'Master's Garden' was beautiful. Guides very helpful and friendly and the 'Brothers Kitchen' tea-shop is a little gem from the past.

This is really a smaller version of the Chelsea Hospital. The museum on the first floor is the original room in which the Guild held its meetings in mediaeval times. The buildings are beautiful and can be remembered for appearing in many TV costume dramas. A bit of old Warwick that should not be missed!

A survivor of a bygone age, the Lord Leycester Hospital is worth a visit. There are still ex-forces people living there under the leadership of a master.

This Tudor “retirement home” for armed forces personnel is still home to a gaggle of retired brothers and a master. A fascinating place to visit and the brethren who welcome you are obviously very knowledgeable custodians. The Hospital also houses the regimental museum for the Queen’s Own Hussars, which is an added diversion and included in the price. In our... More
