Visited early December. Fascinating history to well preserved centuries old buildings and chapel. Given an excellent insight to the history of the attraction by one of the guides. Well run cafe on site.

As with other points across the city, this spot preserves 15th century architecture and offers a self guide leaflet if you are interested in knowing more about what you are looking at. The entrance ticket priced at £8.50 felt a bit expensive in comparison with...More

Very much worth the short walk to the edge of town to take this in. Attractive old buildings from the outside reveal a fascinating history and construction once inside. A laminated sheet tells you the back story of the Brethren and guides you round the...More

If you're visiting Warwick you need to stop and see the "Hospital". It's a beautiful relic of how the town was before most of the buildings were destroyed by fire in the seventeenth century. Don't miss it!
