Uncover the hidden people and events that shaped Leamington Spa and the world as we know it. Join us as we share our favourite stories and show you OUR Leamington – from the first entrepreneurs, to scheming emperors, royal visits, revolutionary inventors and much much more!

Our tours are in small groups and are perfect for visitors and locals alike.

Sample itinerary:

- Our tour starts in the late 1700s before the dawn of the famous Spa era. As we make our way through the town we explore how the town became famous, how it grew and how it became the town we know today. We’ll learn about famous residents throughout the Georgian, Victorian and Windsor eras – from royalty, to doctors, poets, inventors, war heros, circus performers to name a few! We’ll dip our toes into the hidden history of Leamington by exploring the landmarks, architecture, and the personal stories of the people who shaped the town and world we know today.
