About Lord Leycester Hospital

60 High Street, Warwick
Warwickshire, CV34 4BH

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. 

• Unique medieval gem in Warwickshire that provides an intimate and informal wedding venue • 14th century buildings that are steeped in history and character • Licensed for civil ceremonies of up to 60 in the charming, timber-framed Guildhall • Under certain circumstances a ceremony of up to 100 can be accommodated in the Great Hall • Up to 90 can dine in the ancient Great Hall - receptions can also be celebrated in here • Outstanding food and wine from our recommended suppliers

Spring Wedding at Lord Leycester
Venue Service

By Jo and Jules Joseph, on 03 May 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Apr 2017

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.

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.

absolutely brilliant!

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.

A beautiful and friendly venue.

We were married in Warwick and had our reception at the Lord Leycester Hospital in August 2007. We had a drinks reception in the courtyard and a sit down meal for 80 in the hall. The contact that we had with the Lord Leycester was excellent - friendly and helpful - right from the start and all the way through until the end of the wedding day. We had an absolutely wonderful day and our guests were blown away by the venue.

Fantastic Venue

The staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble and the day went to perfection thanks to their organisation and friendly attitude

Beautiful and unique setting, great service

By Katie P, on 04 Sep 2008

This is the perfect venue for your wedding reception. It is unusual and beautiful and your guests will certainly be wowed by it! They do have a civil licence for ceremonies too but I just had my reception there so can't comment on that service. The organisation was as stress free as it can be and the staff are extremely helpful and genuinely interested and caring about your day. Great personal service, you don't feel like you are one of a massive conveyer belt of weddings. I would reccomend this venue to everyone. My day was amazing and well run - you do have to book your own caterers etc but this can work out to be better value for money and the venue can reccomend local suppliers who have worked there before. Overall fantastic experience.

The venue excelled all of our expectations

By Annette Cresswell, on 02 Sep 2008

When we first went to the Lord Leycester we fell in love with the beauty and character of the building. As a venue for a wedding we could not have asked for a more perfect setting and the cherry on the cake came from the brothers who added a charm and class not offered anywhere else. This venue made our wedding the intimate stunning day that it became and we thank everyone there for this. We were married in the Guild Hall which provided so much that we didn't need to add much decoration. This was followed by drinks in the court yard which made for some beautiful photographs we also used the garden which was amazingOur wedding breakfast was held in the Great Hall which was perfect and went on into the night with the disco lights dancing off the beautifull beamed ceiling. All through our wedding from the moment we booked to the end of the evening we knew we could not have found a better venue for the happiest day of our lives so far....

Fabulous, beautiful venue and excellent service from all the Lord Leycester

We found the Lord Leycester to be an excellent venue that fulfilled all our needs for our special day. The Master was very accommodating, the recommended caterers were fabulous and the vintners were amazing value. Would highly recommend this historic venue to anyone as it provides great value coupled with a perfect, photogenic backdrop.

The perfect venue for our wedding.

We loved the uniqueness of the building, which perfectly suited our number of guests. many of our guests commented on what a good choice the venue was, and many were surprised that it was possible to get married in such a special and historic building. The staff were all extremely helpful, and we feel very lucky to have found the Hospital for our wedding.

Fantastic venue, staff superb.

What more can we say delightful surroundings, well organised and thoughtfully looked after.

Amazing venue
Venue Service

By Danny and Alex, on 30 Aug 2008

We had a wonderful day in a beautiful setting that was everything we could have wished for. The Lord Leycester was very helpful and accessible throughout the planning process. Our only reservation was that on the day there wasn't really anyone around to tell us where we could go for photographs etc. This was a bit confusing!

A perfect gem of a location and venue not widely known about. You must check it out.
Venue Service

By Paul & Yvonne Milton, on 29 Aug 2008

A lovely, picturesque, historic and classic venue which includes a great banqueting hall used by Kings of England, over 600 years old in the centre of Warwick. Very atmospheric. Ideal for guest numbers upto a 100. Beautiful 'Masters Garden' at the back of the Hospital ideal for wedding photos.We were extremely impressed also by the personal attention from all who helped at the Hospital as well as the caterers, wine merchants and evening entertainment that was recommended to us. No 'mass produced hotel reception here',the chance to really customise your day in beautiful and historic surroundings.....a touch of real class. Our wedding day was one which we shall remember for a lifetime thanks in large part to the Lord Leycester Hospital and all there who helped us.
