Royal Leamington Spa
Warwickshire
Leamington Spa - formerly known as Leamington Priors - is about a dozen miles to the north of
Stratford-upon-Avon and is now virtually joined to Warwick.  Leamington grew around the saline
springs and the Royal Pump Room and Baths, which were opened in 1814. A treatment at the
baths was supposed to be very beneficial and claimed to cure many disorders - gout,
rheumatism, stiffness of the joints etc - and the spa water was drunk as a laxative. There are
many beautiful old buildings in the town, which has a wide, main shopping street - the Parade -
and some well maintained gardens around the river Leam.
Charles Dickens was a frequent
visitor and set a scene in "
Dombey and Son" in the town. For more information about
Leamington, visit

production of this card.
This type of postcard was widely
produced in the early 20th
Century. It was very simple to
add any place name when
printing.

I drove through Leamington on 30 Nov 2008 and was sad to see that
the old Midland Red garage opposite the station has been
demolished. My dad used to drive for the Midland Red and was based
at this garage.
And Did You Know....that Aleister Crowley was
born at 30 Clarendon Square ? You may never

we think you will find his life interesting - follow
