About
The history is astonishing, it has been in use continuously over many years, the link to veterans and the good work which is still going on is incredible and very worthy. A real treat for a history lover - authentic, special, and fascinating. In the reign of Queen Elizabeth I the buildings became, under the patronage of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, a place of retirement for old warriors who had fought in the Elizabethan era wars. These soldiers are known to this day as the Brethren and with the Master, still live within the walls of the building. Master and Brethren are a living legacy of almost 450 years of history. Every morning they meet in the Chapel and pray together the words written by their founder Robert Dudley. You can often see the Brethren in ceremonial uniform as they give tours through the buildings and gardens.

The Great Hall and its lovely cream teas, we did that first since we had arrived after a long drive. All the rooms were interesting and nicely set out with information, furniture and dressed manikins. The gardens were also good which we managed to get round with a wheelchair. Especially liked the courtyard which acted like a time machine, taking us back to the Tudor era. Thanks to all the staff and brethren for their help and knowledgeable information in making our visit so memorable.

if you are an historian or just an interested visitor the Hospital is a fabulous place to visit. the staff are welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. Allow two and a half hours to do it justice. lovely garden to wander in. clean loos. a 5 minute walk from the pound an hour car park at St Nicholas Park. there is a cafe but cannot comment as we didn't goto it.

Had discovered this by googling the location for a tv series/ SO SO glad we did.
We booked a guided tour. John was ready as we arrived. We had a good hour's private tour of this wonderful building. Its a lot bigger than you would imagine, and a lot more to it.
The gardens are sensational.
We were free to continue to explore after the tour, as part of the cost.
If you are anywhere near, visit, and spend the extra £3 on a guided tour. Well worth the money. You are taken round by on of the Brethren who live in the buikding.

A truly amazing place if history is your thing with a wonderful garden which was a pleasure to walk around, the weather was great during our visit and the place was not at all crowded.
