Ever heard of Leamington Spa?

by bellajas

Hi people,

I am just interested in whether many of you have been here (Leamington Spa) or heard of Leamington? And generally what your opinions are of the place.

Thanks

Jas

Went there when I was younger - some years ago know. My father was born there so we were visiting various places of significance in his youth.

Fairly decent English town as I remember. Might have changed now?

Yeah its lovely,

I've lived here all my life, have been away many times but have always ended up back here. I know I have explored most of the little town, and its my home. Would just like to share what I know. I know a lot of little places to go and be alone and just wondered whether someone else might know of anywhere peaceful and quiet and picturesque, in Leamington that I have not yet come across.

American author Nathaniel Hawthorne used to live in Leamington Spa, and Louis Napoleon spent some of his exile there. They do a nice cream tea in the Pump Rooms (according to my Auntie Joan)and the adjacent free museum about Leamington's history as a salt water spa is excellent.
If people have the time it's worth a stop, and perhaps add it to a Srtatford and Warwick Castle itinerary.

I live about 8 miles from here. It is a beautiful town full of regeny style buildings which seem unique to England. Not too many attractions apart from the Pump Rooms and Jeffersom Gardens. The shopping is great but best shops are quite high budget. Best shopping areas are Park Street and Regent Street with more High Street names located on The Parade and in the Royal Priors shopping centre. Restaurants tend to be quite standard but couple of good Thai restaurants and Indians. Warwick tends to be more upmarket.

Travel Tips for Royal Leamington Spa

The Temperate House

by easyoar

You don't normally see Hibiscus plants growing in England, the temperature is far too cold for them to survive the long winters. They are more associated with Malaysia (the national flower I believe), Spain and other warm weather climates. The reason this one survives is that it is kept in a glass house and kept artificially warm, as you can see, it looks pretty happy. This can be found within the Jephson Gardens and has a cafeteria adjacent to it. It is free to go inside.

Leamington’s Pump Room Gardens

Warwick

by antistar

A short bus ride away (or long walk) is the beautiful old town of Warwick. This town was once one of the most important in England, and this is evidence in the grandness of the castle which once guarded it. The castle is arguably the most complete in Britain, and it has a distinct Disneyesque charm to it. The place was taken over by Madam Tussauds, and draws in the tourists from all over.

The town itself has an ancient charm to it too. Unlike Leamington, which is relatively new, Warwick dates back centuries, and you can see it in the half-timbered Tudor houses scattered across its charming little streets. Mill Street by the castle is a perfect example of this, and walking down it feels like stepping back in time. All it needs is some mist to draw in, and you'd be back in the middle-ages.

Apart from the castle Warwick has a few smaller draws, like the Lord Leyster Hospital, the Collegiate Church and the Eastgate. Just out of town you can also visit Warwick School, one of the elite private schools in Britain, home to the children of the rich, famous and influential all the way back to the Doomsday Book... and probably before that too.

The Weir and Suspension Bridge

by antistar

The weir on the River Leam is traversed by a delicate suspension bridge that leads from Jephson Gardens to Leam Terrace. At the weir the River Leam widens, and creates a placid body of water, replete with green moss and swans. There are shaded grassy banks on either side of river to enjoy the tranquil waters, at Jephson and Mill Gardens. The bridge itself is based on London's Albert Bridge, and was opened in 1903.

Royal Pump Rooms

by antistar

Built for the famous spas that turned Leamington from a sleepy village of a few dozen people into a thriving county town of a few thousand in a matter of years, the Pump Rooms are central to the history of the town. When the Pump Rooms were built, the existing spa baths on the other side of the river, where Bath Street now is, were unable to cope with the demand from the wealthy Victorians seeking the health properties of the spa waters. The Pump Rooms were built in 1814, and the collonade of Doric pillars out front were transported by canal barge all the way from Derby.

The fashion for health spas lasted only a few decades, and the Pump Rooms went rapidly into decline, but in the late 90s were saved by a renovation that saw it refitted with library, art gallery and museum. It also hosts a cafe and the main tourist information centre. The attached gardens, opened to the public in 1875, are always packed with people on hot summer days, and play host to the annual Leamington "Peace Festival", in June. During colder months the park is usually home to a couple of homeless tramps, and the bandstand populated by delinquents.
