Explore Warwick town centre with two self-guided heritage walks with a treasure hunt theme. Discover Warwick's "hidden treasures" whilst having a fun day out with family and friends!
Warwick is a lively market town, famous for its dramatic, perfectly preserved, castle which dates back to William the Conqueror, and whose grounds were landscaped in a grand scale by Capability Brown. Sitting on the River Avon, Warwick has extensive parks and gardens to enjoy on a summer's day, and as you walk round the town you can't fail to be impressed by the many chocolate-box style buildings. Then there's the Lord Leycester Hospital almshouses, military museums, ancient town wall gates, St Mary's church with its rare medieval ducking stool, and a lively market square, host to much entertainment!

1. Warwick Town - 1.5 miles / 2.4 kms
Warwick, the county town of Warwickshire, is steeped in history, with many important medieval buildings pre-dating the Great Fire of 1694. Elsewhere are a number of buildings rebuilt in the elegant style of the late 17th and early 18th centuries. This route weaves its way around all this history and architecture and reveals the personality of a quintessential English town.
