Brilliant afternoon looking at the history of the building and talking to the old soldiers. Didn't dislike anything.

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

Most charming architecture in Warwick, but entering within will suck you into a lengthy greeting and lecture you will be unprepared for. We came in inquiring about what the hospital was. After it was explained we bought tickets to realize we now had to sit through a 30min lecture of the hospital and village history. We were then escorted outside... More

This is an interesting place, the buildings are very good with loads of history. The Brothers are keen to chat and answer questions. You can spend a fair bit of time looking through the Hussars Museum.

This small tea room housed within The Lord Leycester hospital is well worth a visit and can be accessed separately to the hospital. Food is all freshly prepared and home made with a nice selection of sandwiches and salads available. Alternatively pop on for tea and a large slice of delicious cake. Beautiful location too.

we were met by one of the brethren, a retired Royal navy man who told us much about the 'hospital'. We walked around enjoying the chapel, great hall, courtyard, brethrens' kitchen, garden and the Queen's Royal Hussars exhibition/museum. This would probably not normally interest me but we were taken around on a personal tour by a retired Hussar officer, who... More

We spent about an hour at Lord Leycester Hospital .. a building founded in the 1500's as a hospital for disabled soldiers. Blows me away that that this place is still standing, let alone the amazing state of repair, and there is also a reference to the Second World War. If you like stepping back in time, this is the...

We began our visit with teacakes and a drink, in the Bretheren Tearooms. There are several historical features and artefacts in there, as well as a warm welcome. The resident/guide who welcomed us into the Hospital itself was very informative, and he sent us on our way round the Chapel, the Great Hall and the Courtyard, reading the information sheet... More

The Lord Leycester is a genuine historical treasure which retains its authenticity (unlike the castle which has sold out to Tussauds). For a modest entry fee, you get an entertaining introduction to the building from one of the residents, and then you follow a self-guided route through the site which points out things of note and provides historical context. The... More
