The Royal Pump Rooms is a Grade II listed building on the Parade in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England. It was the most famous of several spa baths opened in Leamington between the late-18th and mid-19th centuries. People would travel from throughout the country, and indeed Europe, to benefit from treatments using the town's healing waters. When 'taking the waters' became less fashionable after the mid-19th century the Pump Rooms became Leamington's only surviving spa facility, later also being extended to include the town's public swimming pool. After a major redevelopment in 1997-99 the building now houses Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum, a public library, a Tourist Information Centre, cafe and assembly rooms.

The Royal Pump Room Gardens is a popular open space found in the centre of Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England, next to the Royal Pump Rooms and just north of the River Leam. Despite being named "gardens" there is only one 5.4-acre (22,000 m2) area divided by footpaths with an ironwork bandstand in the centre. Opened in 1814 with the Pump Rooms themselves, to begin with the gardens were only for the use of patrons of the Pump Rooms "to afford them pleasant promenades." The original bandstand was later erected and bands played in the afternoon and evening during the summer (and other public holidays) for those paying to use the baths. During these early days the famed tightrope walker Charles Blondin crossed the area in July 1851. However in 1875 the gardens were opened to the public. In 1881 plans were made to build the town hall on the gardens but at the last minute a change of site was agreed and it was built further north near The Regent Hotel. In 1893 a pedestrian bridge called York Bridge was built over the river. The second bandstand was designed by Walter MacFarlane & Co and founded in Glasgow. It was installed in 1896. Also the only remaining examples of the original Leamington cast iron gas lamps can be found alongside the south side of the gardens. The gardens originally contained decorative flower beds but with the decline in fortunes of the Pump Rooms themselves these have been grassed over. Bands still play in the bandstand, although very infrequently but the gardens host the annual Leamington Peace Festival, a fun fair once a year and farmers markets once a month. It is also a popular place for young people, especially those from the nearby Warwick University to sunbathe and play football. As it lies so close to the river it is part of the town that is most frequently flooded. The last two times such floods occurred were at Easter 1998 and in the summer of 2007. In March 2012 new lights in iron arches (commonly known as the Linden Arches) were erected along the pathway furthest from the river. They were officially unveiled by Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester. This is the first major alteration to the park's superficial appearance since 1896. This was followed later in the decade when the bandstand was removed in autumn 2018 and returned re-furbished and painted different colours in spring 2019. The paths were slightly re-routed and totally re-paved and a new seating area with rock features and a small pond was constructed at the western end of the gardens. The £1.4 million project also included new railings and new trees being planted.

Fun for children
Victoria Park is a public park in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England. It is situated about half a mile (800 m) west of the town centre and is on the south bank of the River Leam. The total area of the park as it stands today is 18.5 acres (7.5 ha). Up until the 1830s the park was just part of farmland on the edge of the growing spa town. It was at that time that one of the local land owning families, the Willes, began to hold archery competitions on the land. In the middle of the nineteenth century Leamington Cricket club made their first home there and in the 1860s the New Riverside Walk was opened. The park was extensively landscaped and redesigned in 1899 to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. Before the Royal Show moved to Stoneleigh Park one of its venues was Victoria Park. The bowling greens are amongst the best in England, hosting the English Men's and Women's Bowling Championships annually as well as the Women's World Bowling Championships in 1996 and 2004. The bowling greens will host the lawn bowls event at the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Most of Leamington's municipal tennis courts are located in the park (more are located at the top of The Parade) as well as extensive children's play areas, a skate park and a cafe. The park was chosen to host the 2007 European Race Walking Cup.

Shopping
Parade is a 0.51 mile long street in the town of Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England. Running in a north-south direction, it forms part of the longer B4087 which runs from the A445 in Leamington to the B4086 in Wellesbourne. The road is the central shopping hub of the town, and upon it sit many of the town’s high street stores, as well as some of the best examples of Regency architecture, for which the town is known. It is often erroneously called "The Parade", and spoken of as such, but all maps and resources such as the Royal Mail's postcode database simply have "Parade". Parade and the crossing roads of Warwick Street and Regent Street have an eclectic mix of independent retailers selling unique and interesting wares, coupled with all the well-known brands offered by national chains. So whether you’re after one-off pieces or household names, Royal Leamington Spa has them all within a beautifully picturesque town centre.

Stoneleigh Abbey & Country Park Stoneleigh Abbey was founded in the 12th Century after the land was granted by Henry II to a group of Cistercian monks. They lived peacefully on the banks of the river Avon until the dissolution of the monasteries in 1536. In the 1560s an Elizabethan mansion was fashioned from the monastic ruins by the Leigh family who continued to live at Stoneleigh for the next 400 years. Over the years Stoneleigh Abbey has welcomed many important visitors including Charles I, Bonnie Prince Charlie, Queen Victoria and Jane Austen. Jane Austen in particular holds a special place in the heart of Stoneleigh Abbey as this was the country seat of her relatives and in 1806 she came to the Abbey with her mother and sister. Little has changed since 1806, the rooms and much of the furniture are still as Jane would have seen them and there are several portraits of her ancestors around the house. Her fascination with Stoneleigh is revealed during the Jane Austen tour of the Abbey where guides use readings from original letters as well as her works.

Find out more information here. Jane Austen Have you ever wondered where Jane Austen got the inspiration for the places and characters in her novels? For 400 years Stoneleigh Abbey was home to Jane’s maternal relatives, the noble Leigh family. In 1806, Jane, with her mother and her sister Cassandra, visited Stoneleigh Abbey in the company of her mother’s cousin, the Reverend Thomas Leigh. During her stay Austen was so inspired by the house, its grounds, and the many family intrigues that she wove descriptions of the interiors, views of the grounds, and cameos of the family into her novels. Visitors to the house can see the interiors and much of the furniture as it was in Jane’s time, view the famous chapel and woodland walks of Sotherton Court in Mansfield Park, learn where Jane Austen garnered her understanding of the social nuances of her time. Repton Walk Featuring spectacular views of the house from across the River Avon, the Repton Walk takes you into the woodland, where bluebells, snowdrops, deer, and many other native species thrive. It was the preference of Repton that the alterations to the estate should enhance natural beauty rather than tame it, you can now experience an idyllic woodland setting unlike the manicured lawns at some other country houses.

Warwick Castle is a medieval castle developed from a wooden fort, originally built by William the Conqueror during 1068. Warwick is the county town of Warwickshire, England, situated on a bend of the River Avon. The original wooden motte-and-bailey castle was rebuilt in stone during the 12th century. During the Hundred Years War, the facade opposite the town was refortified, resulting in one of the most recognisable examples of 14th-century military architecture. It was used as a stronghold until the early 17th century, when it was granted to Sir Fulke Greville by James I in 1604. Greville converted it to a country house and it was owned by the Greville family, who became Earls of Warwick in 1759, until 1978 when it was bought by the Tussauds Group. In 2007, the Tussauds Group was purchased by The Blackstone Group which merged it with Merlin Entertainments; Warwick Castle was then sold to Nick Leslau's investment firm Prestbury Group under a sale and leaseback agreement. Merlin continues to operate the site under a renewable 35-year lease.
