“Good place to start your trip”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Well restored building although not much of the original function seems to remain. Good cafe and facilities for the visitor,

it houses the local Tourist office. Mind however that parts of the facility seemed to be closed if you visit on a Monday.

The Royal Pump Rooms are situated in the Parade and so are close to the centre of Leamington Spa making the building a good place to start to see the town.

“Great redevelopment of an old space”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

Leamington Spa is a must visit place. I love the mix of the old and the new. The facade of the pumps rooms is wonderful. The interior is very clean and has that functional surgical feel all this conversions do. However it also manages to have a charm which most don't. The cafe looked fun. Loved the tourist office all in all charming. Also loved having a drink from the water fountain by the river. Like all spa water it was disgusting but fun to say you've drunk it.

“Excellent small gallery”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

The Pump Rooms are really a small complex including the museum and art gallery, a tourist office / souvenir shop, cafe and public library. The collection itself is not large but eclectic, from very modern to very traditional, and well presented. There are frequently interesting temporary exhibitions, currently one focusing on rural life entitled This Green and Pleasant Land. The museum is housed partly in the former hammam. If, like me, you are prone to "museum fatigue" on occasions, this will pass an interesting and enjoyable hour very easily.

“Friendly staff in the museum and art gallery”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Ready to help and answer questions .Went to see a particular exhibition 50 years of the Irish club ,which was small but interesting .Shame it wasn't in one of the main galleries and better displayed ,( the black and white photos were already tatty and it's only been open three days ???very difficult to read as it was so dark ) surely there are more artefacts which could have been put on show considering the length of time the Irish have been settled in Leamington !!!
The exhibition of farming was excellent ,loved the range of artefacts which included a scarecrow ,wonderful paintings and the photographs are thought provoking .
Well done to who ever has been involved with the children's area ,it is so well thought out .Im sure the children will enjoy it .
It was great to see the multi bladed penknife I remember it from my childhood !!
The restaurant staff are also very pleasant and had a lovely lunch

“Good Service”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Excellent access for chairs, beautifully done, so it blends with the building, very helpful staff, but a little pricy, but that's the only negative I can think of, it's worth the price though as a treat.
