    • История
    • Фото

    The formidable Warwick Castle has been keeping out invaders since the 11th century. Must-sees include glittering chandeliers in the castle’s State Rooms and an intimidating collection of swords and armour in the Great Hall. Down in the dungeons, actors in period costume bring the gruesome reality of the War of the Roses to life.

    The landscaped gardens were laid out by 'Capability' Brown, and include topiary peacocks and brilliant fountains. On the island is a reconstructed trebuchet, a deadly medieval machine that fired huge stones through the air. Numerous historical shows held at Warwick Castle throughout the year include falconry displays, jousting tournaments, and demonstrations by the castle's resident archer.

    Lord Leycester Hospital

    Wonderfully preserved medieval buildings

    • История

    Lord Leycester Hospital is a charming group of timber-framed buildings that has been housing former servicemen since the 14th century. The sweeping beams of the Great Hall are an extraordinary example of medieval architecture, but there are also beautiful features from other periods, like the lovely stained-glass window designed by William Morris.

The Brethren's Kitchen has been serving food at this location for 500 years and serves a fabulous afternoon tea with homemade scones.
