What is there to see during my stay in a Hotel in Leamington Spa?
Originally Leamington Priors, the town was named after the River Leam which runs through the south of the town. It was in the late 18th century that the medicinal qualities of the mineral water were utilised and the Royal Pump Room & Baths were built, thus turning Leamington into a spa town and raising the social class of its visitors. It's free to enter the Pump Rooms and definitely worth a visit; if not for the historical insight, then simply for the wonderful architecture. The best place to visit the River Leam is in Jephson Gardens, an award-winning gardens with multiple Grade II listed monuments.
