The hamlet of Little Virginia originally consisted of fifteen cottages which date from the 17th century. The claim to fame of these picturesque thatched cottages is the tradition that the first potatoes brought to England were planted in this location by Sir Walter Raleigh.

St Nicholas’ Church

The Abbey Fields contain the ruins of the Augustinian Priory, founded in 1119 and raised to Abbey status in 1448. The Abbey was surrendered to King Henry VIII’s commissioners in 1538, and subsequently stripped of re-usable material. The Abbey Barn museum is open on Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday afternoons (2.30 – 4.30pm) between Easter and mid-September.

The Clock Tower

29 The Square The modern façade here replicates that of the King’s Arms & Castle Hotel, which formerly stood on this site. Sir Walter Scott stayed here in 1815 whilst writing his novel ‘Kenilworth’.

The tower, at the end of The Square, was presented to the town in 1906 by G.M.Turner in memory of his wife. The top of the tower was damaged in November 1940 by the land mine which destroyed the nearby Globe Hotel and the surrounding area of Abbey End.

The hamlet of Little Virginia originally consisted of fifteen cottages which date from the 17th century. The claim to fame of these picturesque thatched cottages is the tradition that the first potatoes brought to England were planted in this location by Sir Walter Raleigh.

Old Town is a stunning example of English History. Numerous examples of listed buildings can be found on High Street all in excellent condition.

Today, it stands as England’s largest ruined castle where you can scale the heights of the tower built to woo Queen Elizabeth I, marvel at the mighty Norman keep and imagine the majesty of the Great Hall playing host to medieval monarchs and early Tudor kings.
