After the ‘Great Fire’ of 1694 many buildings were rebuilt in the handsome style of the late 17th and 18th centuries. Within the beautiful Collegiate Church of St Mary originally founded in 1123, is the glorious Beauchamp Chapel which ranks as one of England’s greatest treasures.
Modern day Warwick has a wide choice of restaurants and café bars and a variety of interesting shops. Situated on the River Avon, hiring a rowing boat will offer you some of the finest views of the castle and a very pleasant way to spend an hour or so. The banks of the river also make for a perfect picnic spot.
