Hotels in Leamington
In ideal starting point for exploring both the Regency architecture of Leamington Spa and the medieval history of Warwick, Leamington Spa hotels are a great destination for holidaymakers in Warwickshire.
Originally known as Leamington Priors, Leamington Spa was a small village until it massively expanded at the turn of the 19th century due to the rediscovery of the town's saline springs. During the Victorian period, Leamington Spa grew as a famous spa town and a number of prominent bath houses were built. The most famous of these is The Royal Pump Rooms, a Grade II listed building, now home to a museum, public library, tourist Information Centre and a café.
As well as stunning Regency architecture, Leamington Spa boasts a selection of contemporary culture centres. These include the Royal Spa Centre, featuring a multi-purpose theatre and cinema, and the Loft Theatre, one of the UK's leading independent community theatres.
Leamington Spa also has over 60 different pubs, restaurants and bars to choose from, as well as a vibrant live music scene. The area has a number of universities and students often flock to Leamington Spa to enjoy the varied nightlife.
Health and beauty
Beauty treatments may have changed a lot since the 19th century, but Leamington Spa is still well known as a town for pampering. Dotted throughout the town are a number of hair and beauty salons, from the award-winning hairdressers Toni and Guy to the luxurious The Spa at Leamington.
One of the best ways to experience the town is to hire a boat and drift down the River Leam. A heritage trail through the town takes in locations including the residence of the world-famous elephant trainer, Sam Lockhart, and the graceful buildings of Lansdowne Crescent.
Other great outdoor destinations for both family trips and romantic getaways include the community woodland of Foundry Wood and the elegant spaces of Jephson Gardens.
Leamington Spa neighbours the historical area of Warwick. A shortish 3-mile walk will take you to attractions such as Warwick Castle, an impressive medieval castle dating from 1068, and the Collegiate Church of St Mary's, a striking Gothic church close to Warwick market place. Warwick is also home to a fantastic selection of shops, restaurants and bars.
