History of Leamington Spa

Leamington Spa is an attractive spa town known for its fine regency architecture and parks. 

Leamington Spa was once known as Leamington Priors and was a small village until around 1800. In 1784 the village rediscovered its saline springs and started to build baths around some of them. In the 18th century it grew into a spa town due to the popularization of its water which was thought to have medicinal qualities. 

The old Village of Leamington Priors laid on the southern bank of the River Leam, during the 19th Century it was developed and expanded to the north of the River, resulting in the River Leam flowing in between the Old & New town. 

In 1840 the construction of the Victoria Bridge was finished, connecting both towns and replacing the old bridge. 

In 1814 the Royal Pump Rooms and Bath were opened, attracting many wealthy and famous families expecting cures by bathing in the pools. Due to the population there were many Georgian Townhouses being built to accommodate, and the Town Hall was built in 1830.

In 1940 the bombings during World War II moved the town’s statue of Queen Victoria only 1 inch on its plinth, there is a plaque stating this. 

There is a legend that Samuel Lockhart, a famous elephant trainer, had bought his Heighler’s Equestrian Circus to Leamington Spa in 1850. During his stay, he used to walk the elephants through the town, and down to the River Leam so they could bathe and wash. There are many areas named after its most famous group of Elephants ‘’The Three Graces’’.
