A great museum/library/shop/cafe/art gallery all under one roof. Totally free. Very informative and friendly staff.

“Unexpected treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We (like Laurieast775) visited on a cold, damp winter's day - it was Sunday 30th December. Taking a chance to shelter from the persistant rain we did not expect the art gallery and museum to be open between Christmas and the New Year and a Sunday to boot and - even better - free! It was a delightful visit, we were occupied for a couple of hours by the wonderful exhibits in the museum and the delightful art gallery. There were lots of interesting curios of Leamington's past and 'listening posts' to hear first hand accounts of the healing treatments used up until fairly recently at the Spa Baths. I particularly loved the exhibitions of quilted 'paintings' in the art gallery. An added bonus is the children's room with toys and costumes to keep them entertained for a while whilst adults who aren't minding the children go off and explore in peace and another area we saw where they can draw and produce their own artwork. I also noticed good access for disabled visitors. Excellent place to visit!

“Cold Coffee”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We went there on a cold damp post new years day, hoping for a hot drink, what we got was luke warm cappuccino at £1.99 each for small ones, very disappointing.

“tourist information closed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We visited leamington for a couple of days between xmas and new year and went to the pump room tourist info office. The sign on the door said CLOSED from 24/12/12 to 2/1/13. Do these people not realise visitors come when they are not working, from january 2 they will turn up back at work and have few customers because everyone who wanted info will have gone back to where they come from ork

“Fantastic team”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I had my leaving party here. I love the pump rooms, the building is beautifully decorated and a lovely space to be in. But even so the people running the place could very easily spoil it with rules and restrictions given this is a listed building. Not so with the team behind the pump rooms. Every member of the team from start to finish helped make this a memorable experience, they each went out of their way to bring my ideas to life with enthusiasm and encouragement both leading up to the event, and on the night. The chef did a great job with the food, cooking a brand new recipe and the guests were very impressed.
