It is a beautiful church with many interesting features, including floating buttresses, and it was flooded with light and sunshine. Like many old churches it is undergoing lots of renovations and the things we really wanted to see were inaccessible, i.e tomb of Robert Dudley. Despite so many wonderful things in this church, it felt cold and had very little... More

We visited on a lovely sunny but windy day it was worth the climb up 160 steps to see the views across Warwick. The church is lovely too and there was a rehearsal of a choir for Mozarts requiem mass whilst we were there which sounded amazing, a definite added bonus!

Popped in on a whim and had very friendly welcome. Husband very affected by the regimental chapel. Amazing architecture and history. For a quiet and peaceful 1/2 hour its well worth a visit.

This Church is full of history, and still continues to be a place of worship for today's community. It is also a museum, with memories and artefacts from local Army regiments, and the tombs of Earls of Warwick and Leicester, from times gone by. The staff on duty are full of enthusiasm, and willing to spend time, discussing the people... More

We really enjoyed our visit today. We visit every church, abbey and cathedral we can but I have to say this was possibly the sunniest and brightest we've ever visited. Huge windows and a very open layout make it feel very spacious. A really lovely lady greeted us at the door and handed us info packs free of charge. The... More

This is a lovely medieval church with an impressive exterior and fine interior. We were met by a lovely lady who handed us a guide of the church with plenty of useful information on it and stated that she was available to answer any questions we might have. Then it was off on our own to potter about as we... More

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
