Royal Leamington Spa is a beautiful town located in the heart of Warwickshire. With a current population of around 95,000, the town’s growth was largely due to the natural spa springs that were discovered and commercialised in the nineteenth century.

There are many tours and trails to discover; whether you are interested in architecture, art, horticulture or the quirkier side of the town’s history… or just fancy the shopping opportunities!
