For 1,400 years Warwick has graced the Midlands with its fine castle, attractive architecture and sense of history. However, there has not been a comprehensive guidebook available for visitors and locals alike. This book provides a detailed but accessible description of the history and architecture of this fascinating town in the form of a guided walk. Christine M. Cluley has designed a tour that takes visitors round the heart of Warwick within the original walls. The route covers two miles and takes approximately two hours. It can be followed in one attempt or broken up into smaller adventures. The buildings along the way provide a treasure chest of architectural styles with hints of medieval survivals, a few Tudor gems, some Victorian creations, and some more modern additions that bring the story up to date. Above all, though, Warwick offers one of the finest surviving examples of an early eighteenth-century townscape.
