At first you think this is a hospital but it is not and it is a very interesting and unusual place to visit in being a retirement home for aged or disabled soldiers.

We came to Warwick to visit the castle, but having escaped the Theme Park we found refuge in this magical corner of Warwick. The history is intriguing, the architecture fascinating and the welcome from the Brethren warm and hospitable. Good, homecooked food available to top it off and a secret garden to enjoy after your meal. Would recommend to anyone... More

Driving through Warwick today we saw this place and just had to stop because it looks so beautiful. We were greeted by the lovely ex-servicemen that live there and told all about the hospital. We stopped off in the Kitchen for a cream tea which was absolutely delicious and still warm from the morning bake. A place that must not... More

Lord Leycester's Hospital consists of a group of outstanding half timbered buildings and an old chapel near the centre of Warwick.These spectacular medieval buildings must be among the best of their type in the country. Even better, they are still fulfilling their original function by providing accommodation for eight ex-servicemen known as Bretheren and their wives. One was on the... More

We were met by one of the brethren who was very informative and gave us a great insight into the history of the medieval building and the work of the brothers. The buildings are a real treat from the... More

We met brother Bill at the entrance porch and within minutes became aware of the vast amount of knowledge he was able to share with us in his own imitable way. A very entertaining few hours followed as we toured through this historic gem's environs. A very warm welcome was also discovered as we stumbled into The Master, who very... More

One of the very well maintain medieval wood buildings in Warwick located right on the Warwick gate, surviving from the 15th century. This a nice place with interesting history. The Brethren’s Kitchen is open for morning coffee, afternoon tea and homemade light lunches.
