The Royal Pump Rooms is a cultural centre with a rich history in Leamington. It was the only surviving spa facility in the area, the pump rooms were then re-developed in the late 90’s to include the Leamington Spa Gallery and Museum, a public library, a tourist information centre, the assembly rooms and even a café.

Chesterton Windmill

The windmill is one of Warwickshire’s most iconic landmarks. It was built during the 1630’s and was in use until 1910. It is now looked after by Warwickshire County Council and is open to the public occasionally by the Warwickshire Museum Service. It’s a beautiful place to take a walk and get some amazing images of the local area when you can!
