Lord Leycester Hospital is an interesting place, impressive though small. It is managed by really welcoming and interesting people, keen to explain the history of the building. It's history is strictly linked with the one of Sir Robert Dudley, lover of Elizabeth I, and member of one of the most powerful families in the area. Inside the building you can... More

Wow, living nearby and always wanting to visit, finally it happened. The buildings are raised slightly and right by the old Westgate, with the Chapel sitting on top! Quite a feat of engineering! The Brethren who were on duty were extremely helpful and knowledgable, and this collection really is a must see for anyone interested in older buildings. Thank goodness... More

Our coach driver highly recommended visiting The Lord Leicester Hospital. At first we were skeptical as why would anyone want to visit a hospital regardless that it was historic. But we soon learned that actually the word was related more to hospitality and not really respite for the sick. Its meaning is more of a charitable institution proving housing for... More

Went as part of a group and was fortunate to have a guided talk by the Master of this hospital. He was a charming and informative gentleman who enhanced our visit. We visited the garden and whilst everyone else visited the tea shop (which was very good) we dawdled & were lucky to meet the gardener. She was so interesting... More

Went here on a short stopover in Warwick. The gentlemen at the till gave us a brief potted history of the building and it's purpose over the centuries. The leaflet provided was quite useful and gave just enough info to enable you to enjoy the visit but we did find the gardens were slightly disappointing, maybe we were a little... More

Such an old, historic building and absolutely beautiful. We visited in June, the Master's garden was wonderful. We had lunch there too which was fabulous.

In over 40 years of going to Warwick this was my visit . I could picture the characters from our history sitting in the same rooms we were in such is the authenticity of the buildings . The tea rooms were very good and the staff excellent .

We picked up a leaflet and thought as we were out that way we might as well pop in. I am so glad we did, it is an amazing building and the man who gave us the history kept it brief but very informative.We were also given a leaflet about the place which was very helpful. Having taken grandkids round... More
