Lord Leycester Hospital

Heritage Open Day: Discover this medieval Warwick half-timbered gem with a 500 year-old garden. The Hospital is a historic group of medieval timber-framed buildings dating mainly from the late 14th Century and representing one of the finest examples in Britain of medieval courtyard architecture. Clustered round the Norman gateway into the town, the 12th Century Chantry Chapel sits above it. For nearly 200 years this site was home to Warwick’s medieval Guilds. In the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, the buildings became, under the patronage of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, a place of retirement for old warriors who had fought in the Elizabethan era wars. These soldiers are known to this day as the Brethren and still live within the walls of the building, a living legacy of almost 450 years of history.
