7 things to do in Leamington Spa
Take a walk in the gorgeous Jephson gardens, opened in 1831. The gardens play host to beautiful horticulture, fountains and architecture in the form of the clock-tower, the temple and the stunning 3M contemporary lakeside pavilion housing a Temperate House, restaurant and education unit. Bring the kids and feed the ducks, or visit the Aviary Café and have a lovely Victorian tea and cake. A great place in the Summer - you'll often find the fabulous team here for a picnic!
The Leam Boat Centre
Boating for all the family! Take yourself on a boat ride down The River Leam. You can cruise gently through the lovely Jephson Gardens, or why not test yourself and learn to kayak or canoe? The more traditional, relaxed approach, Victorian style, is what we like - gliding through the water with minimal effort in a relaxing cruise around the gardens.
Esque Spa and Salon
This multi-award winning spa and beauty salon, winner of ‘National Salon of the Year 2011’ is relaxed, friendly and truly expert. Esque will cater for your every beauty and spa need! Need a massage? Fancy topping up that tan? In need of a general boost? Esque has everything you need to properly take care of your health, wellbeing and beauty. We love it here at fabulous, and many of us use their expert services!
Leamington is a fabulous place to go shopping, mixing high street names with cosy little streets full of boutiques, salons and independent shops making it the perfect shopping town: a great place for finding a unique gift for someone, or that one-off special item for yourself. With over 400 shops, many of which are individual and long established local businesses (just like fabulous!), you will have a fantastic time strolling around town.
Eating and Drinking!
Leamington also boasts a vast array of eateries from the quirky to the up-market, from quaint homely cafés to chic bars. Food of every variety and from many different cultures will satisfy every taste and fancy! The fabulous team loves 'Bistrot Pierre' for an informal meal, and many of the cool bars - like Voodoo or the Loose Box - for a few evening drinks.
The Royal Pump Rooms
This award winning cultural complex is in the heart of Leamington Spa, in a beautiful period building, hosting a gallery which has frequent and changing exhibitions as well as a museum, a café and some beautiful gardens – the perfect cultural day out!
This luxury country house is on the outskirts of Leamington - a stunning 31 bedroom country house hotel - if you fancy a luxury night’s stay somewhere. Boasting beautiful old English Rose Gardens, and growing its own fruit and vegetables used in the superb kitchens by their Michelin-starred head chef, Simon Haigh, the gardens are a real treat. Mallory hosts many lovely events for us at fabulous, including our truly superb annual Garden Party, attended by many of our designers and customers.
