Leamington became a popular spa resort attracting the wealthy and famous, and construction began of numerous Georgian townhouses to accommodate visitors, and a town hall was built in 1830.

In 1997, the owners of the building, the district council, closed the facility for redevelopment, reopening it in 1999 as a culture centre.

It now contains Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum, a library, a tourist information centre, refurbished assembly rooms and a cafe.

During the Second World War, Leamington was home to the Free Czechoslovak Army; a memorial in the Jephson Gardens commemorates the bravery of Czechoslovak parachutists from Warwickshire.

Leamington Spa is a town and civil parish in the Warwick District Council, an administrative division of the county of Warwickshire.

The seat became highly marginal at the 2005 general election, where James Plaskitt won with a majority of just 266 votes.

In the 2010 general election the seat returned to the Conservative Party, with Chris White winning the seat by 3,513 votes.

The total population for those wards in 2011 was 49,491.

Formerly known as Leamington Priors, Leamington began to develop as a town at the start of the 19th century.

While retaining its assembly rooms and medical facilities, around 1863 it was extended to include a Turkish bath and swimming pool, in 1875 the Royal Pump Room Gardens were opened to the public, and in 1890 a further swimming pool was added.

The economy of Leamington decreased towards the end of the 19th century following the decline in popularity of spa towns, and it became a popular place of residence for retired people and for members of the middle class who relocated from Coventry and Birmingham, and wealthy residents led to the development of Leamington as a popular place for shopping.

This grand structure attracted many visitors, expecting cures by bathing in pools of salty spa water.
