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

Having seen this church from the castle we decided to visit. Luckily, I bumped into someone in the church who was able to give a brief history of the church which helped with the visit. He pointed out a faint image of an "angel" and enlightened me about the Stained Glass window and the anomolies which I may not have... More

After you've visited the castle go to the church, it's a break from the loud noise at Warwick Castle and still has plenty of history. Climbing the tower is well worth it and grants even better views over the town than Guy's Tower at the castle does. Would definitely recommend it!

I visited Warwick Castle a few years ago and although very nice, it attracts the wrong sort of people and is being treated as a theme park! Collegiate Church however is completely different in more ways than one! It's free to walk round the church and only a small fee to climb the tower. Walking around the church there's lots... More

The Beauchamp Chapel alone is a world class historic and architectural destination. The fan vaulting in the choir is magnificent. Lovely view from the Tower.

Well worth a look around if you are in Warwick. There is a lot of history to enjoy including a trip up the tower (what fun, but not for the in-active...!) Friendly staff and a very warm feeling.

An elegant church for the County town of Warwickshire and the home of the Warwickshire Regiment. Beauchamp chapel hosts the fine tomb of Sir Guy, Earl of Warwick, and several fine brasses. Often used for concerts, choral or classical and commemorations. Fine view from the tower of surrounding town, castle and countryside. Adequate parking close by.

Warwick is a great example of being built in the sign of the cross. Start with the castle then walk up to the church. The main road cuts across. The church is a must to see. It is steeped in history and there are different sections where you can explore and be thrilled by going up the tower to feeling... More

I visited the church today and they asked me 2 pounds for admission! I thought donation was optional... OWNERS of St. Mary's church change the phrase for visiting on your website "We make no charge for visiting OUR Church", that the admission in YOUR church is not free!
