The exterior of the church is beautiful. It is free to enter. We were greeted by two lovely ladies who offered their help if we had any questions. We walked around on our own, visiting the Beauchamp chapel, among other parts of the church. They do have a brochure to take when you are walking around which is helpful. Once... More

Ok, I must come clean. I am a member of the congregation here. But I feel passionately about this church as a wonderful place of worship and historical significance. Simon Jenkin's book "England's Thousand best Churches" rates the Collegiate Church of St Mary Warwick as a five star church. There are only a dozen in that category. The church has... More

We called in to see this lovely church whilst passing. A warm welcome from Rita and Sue was appreciated. We were given a short guided tour of the main parts of the church, and wandered around to see the rest. The choir stalls are a lovely more modern development. No charge for the tour but like all churches a donation... More

Historically fascinating building, particularly the Beauchamp Chapel. The choirs of St Mary's are superb. A girls choir and boys with men choir, both musically outstanding - cathedral music in a market town. Regular concerts and services are a treat.

We went fairly early on a Tuesday morning. The church itself is free to go in. The crypt is incredible when you look at the dates on the tombs. Coming from Canada , it's hard to believe that this church was there before anyone even thought about N America. The climb up the tower, which costs a few pounds is... More

We received a nice welcome here from a guide and enjoyed the tour round the buildings that was well laid out and described on the handout she gave us. Definitely worth a visit.

We visited here to see the annual Christmas Tree Competition in December & were amazed by the building, it's huge & so interesting. The volunteers were very helpful giving us a tour into the small chapel & then the crypt. The crypt is great & there is lots of information to read about the inhabitants who lived & died in... More

lots to see, medieval church, classic example of 14th and 15th century architecture. Always open, and the city is worth a visit as well.

This little gem of a church has as many stories to tell as the next door Castle might have! An informative visitor's guide is handed to you on arrival, and takes you through the various parts of he church and its history. Volunteer guides are also available to give more information on some of the quirks, and also some of... More

Visited on a freezing Mon. morning in Dec. the church was warm and several people doing jobs, and shop volunteers etc. The building is in an imposing position, was beautiful, well kept and cared for. The volunteers apart from one lady, were not all that welcoming. It is an important part of church life to make visitors feel welcome without... More
