Your kids may be surprised to learn that, once upon a time, there were elephants in this part of England. Minutes from the hotel, in Royal Leamington Spa, you can follow the town's Elephant Trail, which Victorian elephant trainer Sam Lockhart would use to lead his elephants, named "The Three Graces", to the water to bathe. Kids with a keen eye can also spot elephant plaques all over town.
It's no surprise that Royal Leamington Spa has plenty of fine dining establishments and expert food purveyors, but visitors may not expect just so many of them to be interactive. Not only can you visit Aubry Allen's Leamington restaurant, Oscar's – you can also take a butchery class from this butcher to the royals. Similarly, the elegant Restaurant 23 offers cooking classes with its kitchen team.
Learn more about Leamington's history with a visit to the Royal Pump Rooms. Home to the town's public baths until 1990, this 1814 Grade II listed building will appeal to architecture lovers with its columnated facade and Moorish-inspired interiors. It now houses the Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum, with paintings, photos and a children's gallery featuring the local symbol, the elephant.
Take some time away from the crowds at Warwick Castle to explore the nearby gardens. Outside the castle walls but still within view of them, the Mill Garden explodes with flowers and plant life encircling the river. Closer to town, the restored Hill Close Gardens are a network of Victorian gardens once planted by Warwick townspeople to take a break from business.
