Warwick Military Heritage

A Town and Wider County that Commemorates its Military Heritage

The town of Warwick has a rich military heritage. This has now been commemorated through a new Warwick Military Heritage Trail which highlights eight key sites or venues in the town linked to a military history spanning over 500 years. These include three regimental museums, a military veterans hospital, a parish church with regimental chapel and war memorials, a War Memorial and Commonwealth War Graves. Together these honour men and women of the region who gave their all for their country in times of conflict.
