Historic Warwick Walk

We start in the Town Square to learn some of the fascinating history of Warwick, an ancient medieval town whose name means “dwelling by the Weir.” We take a leisurely stroll to see Warwicks famous church of St Marys containing the magnificent Beauchamp Chapel, the final resting place of the Earls of Warwick, and Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, the favourite of Queen Elizabeth 1st.. We visit the Market Square with its pubs and dining places once filled with the noise and bustle of a market town where sheep and cattle jostled for space with peddlers selling their wares. We see the 16th century Lord Leycester Hospital, not a 'hospital' at all but a home for retired military men and their wives. And of course the imposing and magnificent Warwick Castle, the second most important Castle in the country. Photographic opportunities abound as we wander through cobbled streets steeped in history, see the two remaining gates to the once walled town, the church where Tolkein was married, the imposing Courts, the prison and its remnants of the scaffold where many once swung for their crimes.  We see elegantly restored buildings, beautiful English gardens and the peaceful River Avon before ending our tour at the entrance to Warwick Castle, which you can explore further on your own.
