A visit to Lord Leyester Hospital is a truly unique and enlightening experience. For a first-time visitors, this has given us a taste for another visit to Warwick to carry on the discovery of so much history housed in this remarkable building and the town as a whole. Young or old, this is an architectural and historical treasure not to... More

After visiting Kenilworth castle we had a couple of hours to kill and noticed this place mentioned in the tour guide for the castle so went along. Great if you love your history, the building is beautiful, the ex service men who live and run the place are a pleasure, really informative and knowledgeable with a little cheeky humour. I... More

Unfortunately, we did not have the time to go inside this fabously period building. It is NOT a hospital, strange as though it may seem. We look the opportunity to take several photos from outside and that alone, if you are a lover of period buildings, was great. The North city gate is right there too and look out for... More

We didn't quite know what to expect on this visit as we hadn't done much research but our gentlemen guides certainly had. Added in with their extensive and interesting knowledge of the buildings history were delightful titbits of gossip and news of things that only personal experience can add. It was a wonderful morning finished off with a summer walk... More

The architecture of the building is outstanding and it is unspoilt by any attempt to make it trendy for school parties. The knot garden is very attractive, but the Master's garden is spectacular

Warwick's equivalent of the Chelsea Pensioners. A fascinating collection of well-preserved old buildings that still house a few old soldiers. Try the cafe, and don't miss the gardens, especially the Master's Garden - they are a delight to any keen gardener.

Our family attended the wedding of friends last Saturday, the first we have been to in this location. Very impressive building with excellent staff. The great hall is just beautiful and champagne in the courtyard afterwards was exceptional.

Very interesting and a beautiful example of a tutor building. Pretty garden at back and check out the coffee shop.

The Lord Leycester Hospital is a fine tudor building that has been sensitively preserved, and an interesting small museum. The tea room is the most quintessentially English you'll find anywhere, with a good selection of tea, old bone china teapots, doilies, oak tables, staffordshire pottery and dried flowers on the ceiling. The cakes are fresh and made with butter (not... More

We spent a lovely afternoon here in this wonderful place, Very informative staff and the gardens were fantastic to wander about. The Historic tea room must not be missed.
