Travel Tips for Royal Leamington Spa

Guys Cliffe

by antistar

A short walk outside the town's limits, through some beautiful countryside, are the ruins of Guys Cliffe. Like the nearby Saxon Mill, the grounds here have been inhabited since Saxon times. It is named after Guy of Warwick, a legendary figure who is supposed to have set up a hermitage here. Today it is in ruins, after being left to rot, and finally being set on fire during a BBC filming of Sherlock Holmes. The only people who still regularly use the place are the local Mason's Lodge, who meet in the chapel.

Bright Obelisk

by easyoar

In the late 1860's, the public drinking water in Leamington was of a very bad quality. Most of this water came from local wells and the Leam river. It was highly likely that it was polluted. In 1870 medical officer from the Government in London, declared Leamington's water unfit to drink.

Henry Bright decided something needed to be done, and was one of the leading campaigners in getting new bore holes to be drilled. The second of these holes was a success and by 1879 Leamington had a clean water supply. To commemorate the clean water and Henry Brights efforts, this Obelisk was built in 1880. Ironically the actual drinking fountain Henry Bright built is now sealed off!

Jephson Gardens - Hitchman Memorial Fountain

by antistar

This elegant fountain was built in 1869, to commemorate another of the three doctors who are regarded as the "founding fathers" of Leamington town proper, Dr John Hitchman. The fountain can be seen from the Parade, as you walk past the gardens, and looks amazing when it occasionally freezes in winter.

The Town Hall

by easyoar

The Town Hall was another erection in Leamington that was designed by the local architect J.A. Cundall (he also designed the Hitchman Fountain [see another tip]). The Town Hall was officially opened on the 17th September 1884. Not much more to say on this one really! You'll probably walk past it on your way to Jephson Gardens.
