I fist of all saw St Mary's church and thought what a great place to pop the question! I wanted it to be very special as my girlfriend of 7 years means so much to me. I went into the church to talk about the occasion and if it was possible to pop the question at the top of the... More

I would highly recommend visiting this church. The history is amazing, and you MUST climb the 160 steps in the tower to overlook Warwick. You can see the whole town and the castle from another view for only a pound or two.

Fascinating piece of English history. Plenty of information and helpful people around and whilst asking for donations did not put collecting tins under your nose or demand an entry fee like too many churches. Don't miss visiting the crypt to see part of the first church on site.

For the church-crawler, this church has absolutely everything. The monuments are justifiably famous, and the remainder of the church is of exceptional interest. We are always very happy when it is possible to climb the tower of any church, and the climb to the top of this tower is well worth the effort. (Small fee payable.) We were lucky to... More

I didn't actually go in the church and after reading some of the reviews I'm regretting it. But I was walking by and took a detour through the church grounds and graveyard. Realizing cemetery's are not for everyone, I've always been attracted to old graveyards for history reasons, and they can be a bit spooky. This one doesn't disappoint and... More

The Church kept giving, there was something new around every Corner. Helpful staff and not overly crowded.

We were walking past so decided to just pop in for a look and ended up having a really interesting time. It has the main church part, but the crypt and the extra chapels made the difference. Seeing the actual burial place of the Earls of Warwick was quite something. The Information about the history of the place was well... More

I'm a history geek so I really enjoyed visiting the Beauchamp Chantry. The original Norman crypt dates to 1123. After visiting Warwick Castle, you really must pop in and see where the Earls of Warwick are buried.

What a beautiful church! We were greeted by a lovely lady on the way in, I thought she was asking for a fee but it was free to have a look around. Marvellous! The lady gave us a sheet with information about the different rooms and some history of the building. Would absolutely not miss going here if visiting Warwick!... More
