Entering this church, we wondered;"why don't they ask money for it?". They do in London for the West Minister Abbey and this is almost as beautiful and you are allowed to take pictures.
Furthermore is there a man in a certain part of the church, that is happy to answer questions about the church. It is really worth visiting it. And please donate some money. They need it and it it worth it.

Great building and interesting history, it did not take long to walk round but worth a visit if you have time to spare.

After visiting Warwick Castle, we still had some time to spend before catching our bus, so we decided to walk to St. Mary’s Church. It is definitely worth a visit!

Admission is by donation. Photography is allowed. The church is beautiful with gorgeous stained glass windows. The crypt dates back to the Norman times (1023) even though the church burned and was rebuilt by Queen Anne.

For history buffs, Richard Beauchamp (and his parents) is buried here. He was the superintendent over the trial and execution of Joan of Arc. The tombs are elaborate and it was nice to be able to photograph them.

We unfortunately didn’t know we could go up into the tower (a small fee applies). That would be an amazing view over Warwick and the Castle. I would highly recommend taking the time to visit after seeing Warwick Castle!

The church is a distinctive landmark in Warwick. Although we had planned to call in for longer we were delayed and only had fifteen minutes to walk round. The church itself is pretty but the Beauchamp chapel is the place to look if you are interested in Lord Dudley (Elizabeth I's great favourite)! A lovely guide was available to explain more about the history and the impact of the Warwick fire. Totally fascinating. The church is free but there is a small charge to go up the tower. I am sure you would get a fantastic view of this lovely city.
