Accommodation

There are a number of hotels easily walkable from the Royal Pump Rooms:

Parking

Many of the above mentioned hotels have their own parking, but may charge a fee. There is limited parking directly outside the Royal Pump Rooms. Parking is reserved for disabled visitors approximately 10 metres from the entrance. There is a drop off point for coaches on Newbold Terrace. St Peter’s car park is 5 minutes’ walk from the Royal Pump Rooms. You can find out more about Leamington Spa’s car parks here.

Public Transit

Leamington Spa is serviced by a well connected train station located just across the River Leam from the Royal Pump Rooms. A ten minute walk is all that separates the two, so feel free to ditch the car and enjoy the fresh air! There are also numerous bus routes to get you around the local area. Check out Warwickshire County Council’s route map here.

Food

While we’re sure you’re going to love our sumptuous three course meal, there are breakfasts and lunches to think about, too. Leamington Spa has over 50 pubs, restaurants and bars to choose from. They also offer a wide range of special offers, which are found here.

So now that you know where to stay, take advantage of our dinner being on the Friday and turn our celebration into your weekend getaway! Rent a boat on the river Leam, take a geological tour, or visit Jephson Gardens. There’s a robust list of twenty things to do in Leamington Spa here.
