Budbrooke lies about two miles north west of Warwick; the barracks of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment were originally here. The parish church dates from the twelfth century. At Hampton-on-the-Hill there is a Catholic Church in the Gothic style together with Grove Park, the home of the Dormer family who were granted the manor in 1608. Lower Norton is also in the parish.
