    Good experience, lots to see and do. Kept the kids busy all day. Expensive for cafe ! Now charging for the car park also.
    Due to the time of year lots of things not operating.

    Castle bit smaller than expected but was good fun. App didn’t include food ordering as suggested?.

    Undercroft cafe: Very poor service by one rude staff member. Queue for an hour, no sign to say what you’re queuing for so many people were confused, no menu in advanced so you have to suddenly decide at the till and then rudely told they don’t have what you want and no possible way they could put a sign out saying sold out?, How many people want to queue for an hour to turn up to a rude childish woman.

    Archery guys were fun and interactive.

    First and foremost it is important to note that the Lord Leycester is NOT JUST a tourist attraction - there is ALSO a cafe attached and THAT is what I am reviewing.

    Me and (now) Mrs Nomad had a rare day where we were a) awake, b) together and c) NOT working (rare does not come close to describing this particular trifecta!).

    Having gotten a bit bored of our local roasted bean type establishments we decided to venture out into Warwick one morning and spotted this beautiful building as we were hunting for a parking space.

    We were welcomed in by the friendly and fantastic staff, seated ourselves in the beautiful great hall and were left speechless…. At how good the prices were!
    And the quality of the food!

    Perfectly poached eggs for me and a croissant so warm for Mrs Nomad set us both up for a good day.

    Add to that some of the nicest coffee I have had outside of the house and it’s just a perfect visit! (Mrs Nomad even suggested a second cup, and that’s quite rare, let me tell you!)

    In short the message is thus:
    If you are visiting Warwick and need sustenance, forget the chains, come on down to the Lord Leycester cafe. It’s open all year round and knocks the socks off the competition!

    Always lovely to visit Charlecote Park with our dogs and today was no exception. Beautiful blue skies made the park look even more beautiful and lots of deer close by, to see today. Would definitely recommend 😊

    Amazing afternoon learning more history about the Warwick area, including family. We have a love of history and architecture. This was such a gem. The guides were lovely to chat with, too, and full of knowledge and details one wouldn't normally learn.

    Delightful tour of Charlcote mill,with a very good guide.Followed by delicious tea and cakes.
    A working mill so you can only visit on a designated open day.Usually on a Sunday.
    Not suitable for small children or disabled,as two very very steep stairs .Almost ladders.
    But so worth it,living history, that will hopefully live another 300 years.

    We were in the area and decided to visit here. The car park is quite big and was very busy, we managed to find a space and the parking charges are ok, bit pricey, but with the time of day we arrived we only had to pay for an hour as the car park is free after 6pm. They had the 'Sausage & Cider festival' in the park. The park is nice to have a walk around with the river going through it. There are some kids rides which only operate for certain times of the year which is a shame. There is a play area for kids which has quite a few things to do. There is a cafe and some toilets here. There is a large field to walk as well as crossing the river there is a fishing pond and another car park which for the park.

    Overall this is a nice place to visit

    Sunday 8th October 2023, My husband and I awoke to a lovely warm and sunny day. We picked up our friend Susan in the car to go to the Apply Day & Country Fair at Hill Close Gardens in Warwick. We went here in 2022, and it was a fabulous day out, so we decided to come again this year.

    Hill Close Gardens are rare survivors of Victorian detached gardens (once found in many urban areas) used by townsfolk who lived about their businesses in the town centre and had nowhere to grow flowers, fruit or vegetables in their small backyards.

    In the early 1990’s, a local resident alerted the neighbourhood that diggers were moving in and that was the start of the rescue of Hill Close Gardens, with one of the deciding factors being the designations of four summer houses as Grade 2 listed buildings. The site was then listed later that year and preserved for the nation.

    We arrived and parked our car in the pay & display car park. We then entered the gardens and looked at all the lovely country fair stalls. There were arts and crafts, food and drinks, wrought iron ware, natural beauty products, and displays of weaving and spinning as well as growing and cultivating apple trees.

    My husband purchased a pot of honey from a local bee keeper. Susan purchased some hand-made cards and a picture of a black cat which reminded her of her old cat ‘Minnie’. We also purchased apples which had grown in the gardens, these were lovely old fashion varieties with wonderful smells and delicious to eat.

    After wandering around the stalls, my husband, Susan and I then strolled around these lovely gardens with their lovely old fashioned plants and herbs with wonderful old fashioned apple and pear trees.

    This year there was music in the gardens. There was a lovely ‘Jazz Band’, which played for two hours and was a pleasure to sit and listen too. There was also ‘Tibetan’ Gong music, which was amazing and spoke to your soul. It inspired me to write a poem called ‘Warrior of Light’.

    We took loads of lovely photographs as we walked round and rested in the summer houses and on benches overlooking the gardens.

    We had a wonderful day and hope this lovely day will happen in 2024.

    Well, these locks got us the 2.2 miles down the hill but they were very leaky. All of them should have been in our favour and none of them were. Could do with a bit of a fix up.

    We went on the heritage open day and the clear demand shows just what a great place to visit this ruin is. Get there as early as you can as the car park fills up and can be a little tricky to get in and out of. Lots of friendly volunteers around to offer insights as you walk around the premises. Interesting view of the ruins outside as well as the Masonic areas within the building, and a nice walk around the grounds. Mostly not mobility friendly (as ruins often aren't). Situated on a busy road so maybe a little tough to get in and out of at the wrong time - walkable from Woodloes but a bit further from anywhere else in Warwick. If on a heritage day, or another day when open try to get across to the walled garden too which is a lovely experience but again, a little hazardous to get to and from crossing the main road. Highly recommend taking the chance to go if you can.
