Went today whilst travelling back to Derbyshire; always associate Warwickshire with the castle but found this on a search. We were greeted by one of the brethren who was extremely welcoming and knowledgeable. The hospital is a treasure so beautifully preserved. The Chapel is beautiful and has a William Morris designed windows and alter hangings. It also holds a museum... More

This is a beautiful old building and the occupants are very knowledgeable and helpful with information about it. It is a must wee if you are in the Warwick area.

Loved this place, founded before the Chelsea Pensioners, by royal decree, all of the residents are ex-service men and their wives. Modern day connections to various films and tv programmes,

What a wonderful place, from the minute we walked in we were made welcome by one of the Bretheren. There is a whole wealth of history in this place with some beautiful carvings, when you spot the bear and staff in the courtyard look up to the eaves to see the other carved bears in semi- playful poses.

This beautiful old Elizabethan building was erected in 1571 for the 1st Earl of Leicester, Robert Dudley. For nearly 200 years it served as the home of the Medieval Guilds. It is situated next to West Gate in Warwick High Street. Now a lovely retirement home for ex service men.

If you are in and around Warwick this is a must visit, you will only need about an hour max but it is very interesting. For Dr Who fans, the Shakespeare episode was partly filmed here. There is also a fantastic tearoom called "The Brethren's Kitchen" on site, just follow the teapot.

Lord Leycester Hospital is a treat for visitors who appreciate genuine medieval half-timbered English houses. It's not a medical establishment, but rather a residential home for retired military personnel, a role it has played since the 16th century. Eight "Brothers" live here (one of whom will eagerly tell you about the place on your arrival), and a Master presides over... More

Best building in Warwick. Properly old with original beams and walls and very atmospheric. Enjoyed it a lot. Much better than the castle.

Start your visit by listening to one of the volunteers explain what you are about to see. Then follow the route and enjoy what comes to life. When in the Guild Room please take the opportunity to listen to another volunteer explain (with your input) what it contains and about the battle of Waterloo - fascinating. Finally take tea, the...
