About Warwick

With so much history, Warwick has so much to see, do and experience. Warwick Castle is a fantastic place to visit, but there’s so much more just a short walk from its walls too!

There’s the Lord Leycester Hospital, built by Lord Robert Dudley to house retired soldiers – which is still home to veterans today. St Mary’s Church & Tower that gives you spectacular views over the county. Mill Street Gardens and the fascinating Museum of Warwick. And even Warwick’s famous Racecourse.

And that’s just to start! There’s so much to explore, discover and experience when you come to visit.

Food & Drink

When it comes to eating out, Warwick caters for every cuisine you can think of. A 5 minute walk into town gives you dozens of options, from award winning gastro-pubs to pizzerias to fine dining and fantastic take aways.

And there is nothing better than sitting in the Market Square with its great choice of restaurants and bars, eating and drinking and watching the world go by!

And it’s not just your evening meal where you’ll find a huge range of exciting options, Warwick is also famous for its fabulous afternoon teas, like at the historic Oken Tearoom, or at Bretheren’s Kitchen in the Lord Leycester Hospital.
