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

The ex-servicemen live on site and run the tours so they give a good intro and history of the place. It has a small charge to go in which goes to upkeep. Fascinating buildings and history. It's not over-run with tourists and has interesting buildings (chapel, dining hall, quod) to visit as well as tea rooms for refreshment. A lovely... More

A fascinating glimpse of Warwick's history, so much to see in such a small . Everyone was very knowledgeable, from the gentleman at the door - one of the residents, to the man upstairs giving a brilliant explanation of the swords and muskets on display. The chapel is magical and you can almost feel 500 years of people passing through... More

I can't say enough to fully describe our experience here. It was terrific . The place itself is steeped in history. The gentleman upstairs was phenomenal , he took swords down from the walls as well as a musket. He obviously takes great pride in the history of the building and the regiment . Do not miss it !!

These buildings are a wonderful peek into the past and are now home to some friendly retired servicemen. We went at the end of our day and were a bit sceptical about paying to go in but it's really worth it for the wonderful history you learn and the insight into Warwick of so many centuries ago. Don't miss it!
