Royal Leamington Spa is a fashionable and elegant town in the heart of South Warwickshire. With Georgian and Victorian architecture, tree-lined avenues and squares and glorious gardens, it offers a unique experience to its visitors. Leamington has a deservedly good reputation for shopping, ranging from small independently run shops offering unusual and exciting goods to larger stores offering a wide range of products, and from boutiques selling designer labels to high street fashion favourites.

Royal Leamington Spa offers visitors an excellent choice of places to eat and drink, from wine bars, pubs and cafés to bistros and restaurants, catering for all tastes and budgets whatever time of night or day.
The magnificent Royal Pump Rooms
are now a cultural and tourism complex, housing the town's Museum, Art Gallery, Library and Tourist Information Centre, alongside the elegant Regency-style Assembly Rooms and a traditional café. In the museum, there are displays on the historic use of the Pump Rooms and Spa Treatments, including some rather fascinating objects from the former physiotherapy department. Should you wish, and dare to, there is also the opportunity to sample the spa water!
Crossing over the road from the Royal Pump Rooms are the Jephson Gardens
, which are perfect for a gentle stroll. These Grade II listed gardens of horticultural excellence have undergone a £4.3 million restoration project which includes a sensory garden, a temperate glasshouse, a refurbished boathouse and children's play area. There is a new riverside restaurant and the charmingly restored Victorian tearoom.
