The Lord Leycester Hospital is a large grouping of historic Elizabethan Houses and has no medical connections at all!

It is in fact very much like the Chelsea Pensioners home for soldiers - but is an older institution-and currently still has ex-servicemen and women living and looking after the complex- known as the Brethren. There is a lovely Chapel called St. James to visit as well as the Great Hall, Guildhall and delightful gardens.  Located here also is the Hussars Museum with hundreds of artifacts from the Warwickshire Regiment.  After exploring  it is worth visiting the Brethrens Kitchen, which is a wonderful Tea room overlooking the courtyard and masters house. The homemade scones and especially the homemade Coffee and Walnut cake are great.  (Tip - if you want to see some of the house without paying, then visit the Tearoom as you do not have to pay to enter this.) 

 It is the 2nd most visited attraction after Warwick Castle in the area. It is open all the year round (closed Mondays except BH). Don't miss a visit the wonderful walled Master's Garden, one of Warwick's hidden gems, just behind the main buildings.
