    Getting Around Leamington by Public Transport

    by antistar Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In addition to the train services mentioned in the getting to and from section, there are also regular and reliable bus services to all parts of Leamington and the surrounding towns and villages. While the train is always easier to catch from the centrally located train station, the buses are cheaper, run more often, and serve some of the more remote areas that the train cannot reach. You can get direct local buses from Leamington to places like Charlecote, Barford, Stoneleigh, Kenilworth, Southam, Baginton and Gaydon.

    Getting to and from Leamington Spa by Bus

    Leamington is surprisingly well served by the National Express coach service, although you'd be forgiven for not noticing this. The "station" is an unassuming bus stop, located close to the police station on Holly Walk. National Express run daily services running from Bradford to Poole, From Rugby to Brixham (Torquay), as well as London. National Express tends to be very cheap, although not as comfortable or as convenient as the train.

    Getting to and from Leamington Spa by Air

    Leamington is handily located for air travel, and is only a short 20 minute train journey away from Birmingham International Airport. Birmingham International has direct flights to airports all over Europe and North America, as well as other cities, and the prices are comparable to London airports. Heathrow itself is less than two hours away by train, and only requires a change at either London or Reading.

    Leamington is on the main Birmingham to London train line, and so is well serviced, and you can be in London within two hours, and Birmingham in about 45 minutes. It's also only about 20 minutes by train to Birmingham International Airport. Despite recent cut backs in services, meaning some trains bypassing the town, you can still pretty much guarantee a train in either direction within an hour of arriving at the station. Trains also run direct to other destinations, including Bournemouth, Reading, Oxford, to the south, and Manchester, Newcastle and Edinburgh to the north. You can also get regular regional trains to local destinations, like Warwick, Stratford and Coventry.
