An elegant spa town in leafy Warwickshire

Often described as having “the best bits of London, all within a 10-minute walk”, Leamington is easy on the eye, with its captivating mix of Georgian architecture, wide streets and independent boutiques. Parks and gardens bookend the main shopping street, so you can easily stop off for a picnic or autumn stroll after checking out the sales. The exquisite Jephson Gardens offer a burst of colour, while Victoria Park is perfect for families, with tennis courts, skate park, paddling pool and plenty of green space.

Admire the Royal Pump Rooms

Discover more about Leamington’s history with a visit to this magnificent Grade II listed building. It used to house the town’s public baths when people would flock from all over the country for a soak in the healing spa waters. The building is now home to the town’s museum and art gallery, alongside the elegant Regency-style Assembly Rooms and cafe.

Explore Warwick Castle

As castles go, Warwick is one of the best in the world, and well worth a visit. Immerse yourself in myth, magic and adventure as you explore the towers and ramparts, brave the castle dungeon and try to find your way out of the Horrible Histories Maze. New for 2017 is Wars of the Roses Live, and epic battle between the Houses of Lancaster and York. Looking for accommodation in Royal Leamington Spa?
