“Beautiful church”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The church was free to enter, only charging to go up the tower, which we did not have time to do. There were quite a few interesting tomb markers within the church, a chapel dedicated to one of the regiments, and a ducking stool in the crypt. The most fascinating room, however, was the chantry. A volunteer explained much of the history, from the nobles buried there to the restoration of the lower stained glass windows.

“Interesting in a historical sense with interesting architecture”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We visited this church due to its connections to The King Maker.

As with many other British churches, this one has a history going back about 1000 years. It holds the remains of the Lords of Warwick, in the crypt and within other places in the church. Very very interesting. It is also a very attractive church, so you can walk around and absorb the various aspects of the church and their associated history.

“Having come to Warwick to see this”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We were very disappointed to turn up and find it CLOSED despite being well within the posted opening times. If they are not going to be open within the times they set then an explanation on the door would be a good thing to do. I think from the other reviews that this is staffed by volunteers and I understand that sometimes things happen unexpectedly which prevent the normal times being adhered to but then at least have the courtesy to explain to baffled visitors why they cannot access this much vaunted Church.
