Lord leycester HospitalOpen or Close
The Hospital is an historic group of timber-framed buildings on Warwick High Street dating mainly from the late 14th Century clustered round the Norman gateway into the town with its 12th Century Chantry Chapel above it.
For nearly 200 years it was the home of Warwick’s medieval Guilds. In the reign of Queen Elizabeth I it became, under the patronage of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, a place of retirement for old warriors.

The buildings are open to visitors and can be hired for civil ceremonies, receptions, dinners, parties and other events.
