Lonely Planet review

Founded in 1123, this magnificent Norman church was badly damaged in the Great Fire of Warwick in 1694 and is packed with 16th- and 17th-century tombs. Highlights include the Norman crypt with a 14th-century extension, the impressive Beauchamp Chapel (built between 1442 and 1464 to enshrine the mortal remains of the Earls of Warwick), and the clock tower , for supreme views over town.
