I have been here many times just looking but on one visit I asked a question about one of the medieval statues and its symbolism. The guide was so well informed and told me so much more. It was like an excellent free art history lesson in medieval art

Collegiate Church of St Mary’s was one of two churches (plus Westminster Abbey) I visited while travelling around London with my father and older brother. Similar to Temple Church in London (the other of the two), I ended up enjoying the experience more than my experience at Westminster Abbey simply because it was interesting without being overstimulating or crowded. If you’re in Warwick, it’s definitely worth the visit. First of all, entry is free although the church really appreciates donations. Doing the Tower of St Mary’s climb and/or guided tours do, however, incur fees. Second, the church was built in 1123 so it has a strong sense of history reflected in its architecture. It doesn’t have as many effigies as the Temple Church but it has two chapels; Beauchamp Chapel houses the tomb Richard Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick among other tombs and is quite interesting to see. I was also in awe of the crypt with the number of people buried and how far back the burials date. Third they have a great giftshop in the corner of the Nave. Although you don’t have to be religious to appreciate the things they sell, I have a friend who’s very religious so it was the perfect place to buy souvenirs and her birthday present.

The church is amazing and the staff even better. Walking through history as you take each step. The guide was so informative and god knows how she remembered all that information. This is well worth a visit.

If you visit here don't be afraid to ask the voluntary guides some questions - they are full of fascinating information. The Chancel is especially interesting but I went a few times before I asked anything - and i was so glad when I finally did as I was told so much! There are some times free concerts in the middle of the day In January and February, its only open from Thursday to Sunday so be careful of that. The rest of the year its open every day

As the rest of Warwick is shut on Mondays! Very friendly man at front desk. The Tower at £3 is excellent value with great views.
