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!

The buildings are not kept to the high standards they once were and the areas are not kept clean, there is a general air of neglect. Needs some work to restore to former glory,

This building is a must. It is built in the tudor style and is hard to believe that it served as a hospital. The curators are very knowledgeable.

Lovely little tea room plus. Nice surroundings and good service. Cakes were good with a big choice. Great history to the room.

We only managed a half a tour, a wedding was pre-booked so we had half price tickets and thoroughly enjoyed what was on offer. The West Gate chapel is lovely, spot the Warwick bears! The courtyard architecture is well worth seeing, more bears to spot and we hope the porcupine finds his head soon! Up the old wooden stairs to... More

This ancient looking building is wonderful to tour. It isn't a hospital in modern terms of the word. there is a chapel to visit , It is and has always been a place for retired soldiers to live. Steeped in history, you just have to visit it yourself!

Visited yesterday and was amazed at the variety of history included in the few buildings! Excellent room guide in the Guildhall, took us on a personal tour of almost every item on display there. Thoroughly recommended,

Enjoyed the warmth of the residence and their shared knowledge. Café sweet and oldie worldie. Small garden very well kept, but not disable friendly. Tours of the building are on offer at certain times, stairs throughout I believe, but sounds very interesting. Step back in time.

Such a wonderful place, run and managed by ex servicemen. The building is incredible, we were lucky enough to handle some of the artifacts, the gentleman that guided us round the main part of the building was obviously proud of the place and its history and bought to life the many interesting facts he imparted.
