The Lord Leycester Hospital is a true medieval gem in Warwickshire, and provides a historic and unique venue for your very special day.
Made up of a group of 14thCentury timber-framed buildings on Warwick High Street, The Lord Leycester Hospital has never been a medical establishment and simply uses the word ‘hospital’ in its ancient sense – in other words a warm and welcoming establishment for the needy.
The incredibly special, historic feel of the venue is ideal for your wedding if you want a day filled with an intimate and informal atmosphere. Say your ‘I do’s to your partner inside the wonderful 600 year old Guildhall or even the ancient Great Hall, which boasts a splendid beamed roof.
Enjoy unrivalled opportunities for photographs after the ceremony in the galleried Courtyard and the Master’s Garden, ideal for some precious stolen moments with your partner.
After the ceremony, you and your party can enjoy a reception or wedding breakfast back in the medieval Great Hall. You’ll be treated to a grand array of food and wine of an impressive quality from our recommended suppliers.
Continue the celebrations and dance the night away in the Hall with all your loved ones, underneath the same roof where King James the First originally dined in 1617 – the perfect way to end your special day.

Spring Wedding at Lord Leycester
Just a few weeks ago we had a wonderful wedding in the great hall at the Lord Leycester. The building itself is beautiful and we were well looked after throughout. We wanted a simple, rustic wedding and as a result hired in tables and chairs and found a company to put festoon lighting up which looked amazing on the high beams. Having the drinks reception in the courtyard was really special and all our guests commented on what a wonderful place it was to get married. What you get here for how much they charge is incredible value for money and we loved that our wedding would be one of the ways the Lord Leycester help to maintain the building. I can't recommend this place enough, it was perfect in every way.Sent on 03/05/2017

Beautiful venue any time of year
We decided to get married 6 weeks after I proposed! The Lord Leycester Hospital made this easy with it's lack of fuss and it's 'can do' attitude to everything we wanted. The Master is a reassuring and calming man, who made sure there were no panics, either in the preparation or on the day itself. Even though we were married in late December and the building is about 5oo years old, it was warm and had a very 'special' feel to it. The Lord Leycester Hospital is a beautiful place, full of history and we feel privileged to have been married there.Sent on 01/11/2008
A very personal venue,non of the corporate atmosphere of the modern hotel,we were made to feel special,we were not in a batch like we might be in a hotel venue,the Master took charge at several times to make our day specially importantas he said and arranged the timngs of table settings and even parking our cars ,which he need not have done,but did to help us out.We have had two weddings there ,each one unforgettable,the ambiance of the venue,Warwick town and the gloriouse weather in each case.We have been privalaged to have been looked after so well.Sent on 29/09/2008
