The buildings are not kept to the high standards they once were and the areas are not kept clean, there is a general air of neglect. Needs some work to restore to former glory,

This building is a must. It is built in the tudor style and is hard to believe that it served as a hospital. The curators are very knowledgeable.

We only managed a half a tour, a wedding was pre-booked so we had half price tickets and thoroughly enjoyed what was on offer. The West Gate chapel is lovely, spot the Warwick bears! The courtyard architecture is well worth seeing, more bears to spot and we hope the porcupine finds his head soon! Up the old wooden stairs to... More

This ancient looking building is wonderful to tour. It isn't a hospital in modern terms of the word. there is a chapel to visit , It is and has always been a place for retired soldiers to live. Steeped in history, you just have to visit it yourself!

Visited yesterday and was amazed at the variety of history included in the few buildings! Excellent room guide in the Guildhall, took us on a personal tour of almost every item on display there. Thoroughly recommended,

Enjoyed the warmth of the residence and their shared knowledge. Café sweet and oldie worldie. Small garden very well kept, but not disable friendly. Tours of the building are on offer at certain times, stairs throughout I believe, but sounds very interesting. Step back in time.

Such a wonderful place, run and managed by ex servicemen. The building is incredible, we were lucky enough to handle some of the artifacts, the gentleman that guided us round the main part of the building was obviously proud of the place and its history and bought to life the many interesting facts he imparted.

We were greeted by one of the 'brothers'. This was accomadation for ex service men in years gone by. A really nice old building to visit. The leaflet is very informative and told the tale of the days gone by very well. The brethren kitchen served lovely tea and cakes or a full meal. Very reasonable price to pay to... More

Visited this place whilst staying in Warwick. Had to leave a review. This place relies on paying visitors to keep it running, so I recommend you do if staying in Warwick. We were greeted in the ticket place by a lovely chap who is clearly passionate about this place and its history. He spent a great deal of time telling... More
