Discover the secrets of this historic town

Warwick is best known for the magnificent Warwick Castle but that’s not all the town has to offer. There are plenty of other things to do to suit all ages, interests and budgets – whatever the weather – from historic houses and gardens to museums and shopping.

Some of Warwick’s hidden gems include the ancient Lord Leycester Hospital (not, in actual fact, a hospital but a charitable institution), the hedged Victorian gardens and summerhouses at Hill Close Gardens and the fascinating St John’s House Museum. You might prefer to spend a day at the races at Warwick Racecourse, take to the river to see the castle from a completely different perspective or join a Blue Badge Guided Tour for local insight.

After all this sightseeing, you can refuel and recharge your batteries in one of the many tearooms, cafés and pubs in Warwick, where you can plan the next things to do.  

With so many things to do in and around Warwick, it makes sense to extend your visit into a short break by staying at one of the delightful hotels or B&Bs.
