City Facts - Royal Leamington Spa
Leamington Spa is a resort town in Warwickshire, celebrated
for its Regency architecture and wonderful green spaces. Like many resort
towns, it’s based on a mineral spring with healing properties, and came into
existence at the start of the 19th century, drawing people from all over with
its enchanting spa waters.
Nowadays known as Royal Leamington Spa, it’s divided by the
River Leam, and home to historic churches and parks. The town is brimming with
shops, and offers many cultural attractions like the Queen Victoria Statue and
Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum. Other local sites worth visiting
include the Royal Pump Rooms and Warwick Castle.
Leamington Spa’s economy centres mainly on tourism, but the
town also has its very own Silicon Valley called Silicon Spa, recognised as a
major hub for the video game industry. Companies based here include Ubisoft
Leamington, and Supersonic Software.
Its town centre is three miles from the M40 motorway, which
links London to Birmingham. The town is also served by the A46, which runs from
Coventry to Stratford-upon-Avon.
Leamington Spa railway station is one of main commuting
points and provides a regular service to and from the town.
