Queen Victoria Apartment is at the heart of Leamington Spa, a 7-minute walk from its Art Deco railway station and a 10-minute drive from Warwick, Kenilworth and the M40, Junctions 13 (eastbound) and Junction 14 (westbound.) It is 20 minutes by car or train to Coventry, Stratford-upon-Avon, Birmingham Airport and the National Exhibition Centre, with Birmingham City
The centre is around 40 minutes away. Free parking is available in X Street (give details) a 2-minute walk away in the burgeoning Creative Quarter. There are also nearby car parks in Bedford Street and short-stay on-street parking in Newbold Terrace and Dormer Place
The Apartment is next door to the renowned Loft Theatre and the Royal Pump Rooms, now a Museum and Gallery, and across the Parade from picturesque Jephson Gardens, laid out in 1834 and named after Dr Henry Jephson, the famous physician who in early Victorian times popularised the healing qualities of the spa’s waters. The Spa Centre is a short walk away and presents a varied programme of entertainment, from sell-out professional pantomimes, plays, opera and ballet to classical and contemporary concerts. The world’s first club for Real Tennis, the ancient forerunner of modern-day tennis was founded in 1846 in Bedford Street and the game is still played there today. In 1872 two local gentlemen, Major Henry Gem and Augurio Pereira founded the first lawn tennis club in the world in Pereira’s garden behind the former Manor House Hotel (now apartments in Avenue Road.) The modern rules of lawn tennis were drawn up in 1874 at Leamington Tennis Club and the Renshaw twins, born in nearby Holly Walk, won 13 Wimbledon titles between them in the 1880s.
Numerous blue plaques record notable people and episodes in the town’s rich history, among them the tennis pioneers Gem and Pereira, boxer Randolph Turpin, American writer Nathaniel Hawthorne and artist and critic John Ruskin
Warwick Castle, Kenilworth Castle, Charlecote Park, Coventry Cathedral, Stratford-upon-Avon and all the Shakespeare-related locations, Compton Verney Art Gallery near Kineton, and its lk.
