A delightful building full of history now being used as a library, museum and cafe which serves a good cuppa!

A well thought out presentation with something for children to do. Lots to read about its past. Gallery is well presented. Good place to have a snack adjoining the Museum. Not sure why the blue elephant is in the entrance.Free to enter.

If you are free on the right evening this is a great venue to listen to chamber music. The Leamington Festival in May is a treat, but there are also quartet concerts of international standard in the winter well worth attending.
