Has the title suggests just came across this attraction visiting Warwick for a coffee before we went home, so glad we did very interesting . The guide in the queens royal hussars museum asked us if we just wanted to browse or did we want him to pin point things out, so glad we chose the latter, as his knowledge... More

Never used for the sick, established during Queen Elizabeth time for retired soldiers to inhabit. Fantastic timber framed building often used for filming, ie Shakespeare in love. Old English gardens. A short hour, but don't miss this one.

After or dissapointment with Warwick Castle, our plan B was to visit this 'hospital' and it did not dissapoint. Interesting architecture and a well described tour. The men were very helpful and made us feel welcomed. The kitchen had a good range and the brew was well worth it! The garden was very beautiful and I felt at one with... More

Having worked and lived near Warwick we have never visited The Lord Leycester hospital before. What a lovely visit. The staff were more than helpful both at reception, in the museum, the gardens and in the restaurant, all being extremely knowledgeable and more than willing to share with us. The local literature only mentioned the gardens but it is well... More

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.
