Beautiful historic place

A beautiful building housing some real gentlemen. Warwick is very lucky to have such a well maintained historic building. We should all support our history!

We stopped in Warwick for lunch and didnt have time to go inside, however its still very worthwhile to go and look at the outside of these amazing buildings.

If you are into TF buildings then this is a must visit set of buildings. The ex Irish Guardsman's talk was very entertaining, if a little creative on some historical points. Great couple of hours for less than £5, and no hard sell either!

Beautiful old buildings that make you feel like you are in a Harry Potter film! Lots of information including a talk by one of the old soldiers who live there and run it.

We were greeted by one of the brothers a friendly gentleman who gave us a brief history of the Hospital/home and an explanatory leaflet we were then left to explore the building ourselves. There is also a small museum dedicated to one of the cavalry regiments in the British Army. And a small chapel that's still in use. We felt... More

Although this is described as a Hospital, home for 8 ex-servicemen and their wives (a kind of Chelsea pensioners' Hospital), it is much more than this in that it comprises a number of buildings, some of which date back to the 12th century. The establishment of the hospital commenced in 1571 when Elizabeth 1's favourite, the Earl of Leicester, became... More

Very interesting visiting, amazing not only that the building still exists after 500 years but that it's still used for the same purpose! Make sure you don't miss the gorgeous gardens too!

Not a hospital as we would understand that term today, but a hospice for the convalescence of returned soldiers dating back some 700 years. You are greeted by one of the brothers who will give you the history of the Hospital, then you may undertake a self-guided tour following an explanatory leaflet. One of the more remarkable places of interest... More

This looked good as we walked past but when we went in to pay one of the "brothers" took us out and showed us where to go and a lot of the history behind it so following the instructions on the leaflet we had been given were much easier and made more sense! The fact that it was set up... More
