Warwick

Warwick is one of the UK’s most historic towns. There are many buildings of historic interest here. The most prominent landmark is Warwick Castle which dominates the skyline. Warwick Castle is the most visited stately home in Great Britain. With its staterooms, great hall, dungeons and torture chambers it dates back to the 14th century. The 128 foot Guy’s Tower, Ceasar’s Tower and Clock Tower are magnificent examples of a well preserved heritage.

Worth a visit is Lord Leycester Hospital, a group of 14th century buildings which were converted into a home for old soldiers in 1571 and is still in use today. The chapel, great hall and the Guildhall with the museum of the Queen’s Own Hussars are all within easy walking distance of the centre. At Oken’s House you can pay a visit to the Warwick Doll Museum.
