This also makes it popular for weekend shoppers visiting its wide array of independent boutiques and restaurants, as well as with film crews looking for period property features.
Royal Leamington Spa also boasts a hive of SMEs profiting for its great rail and motorway network connecting the town easily to the West Midlands, Birmingham Airport and London.
