In 2017, Royal Leamington Spa (to give it its full name) was voted the happiest place to live in the UK. A ‘strong sense of belonging’ was cited as one of the top reasons for putting it on such a pedestal, and if you’ve lived there for any amount of time, it’s not hard to see why. At the time of the vote, the mayor claimed that Leamington Spa “has it all”, but is that true? If you’re considering moving to Warwickshire and Leamington is in your sights, we’ve picked out a few reasons it’s probably a very good option.
A little bit about Leamington SpaBased in the heart of Warwickshire, Leamington was originally a small village known as Leamington Priors (that explains where ‘The Royal Priors’ shopping centre got its name from, then). During the 18th century, it grew into a spa town thanks to the popularisation of its water which was thought to have medicinal qualities (there’s still a tap in the centre from which you can drink if you fancy giving it a go). With a population of nearly 50,000, Leamington is a vibrant, busy little town that’s instantly recognisable thanks to the Regency architecture and largely unbranded white building frontages.
