Hello All,

Our bid to Heritage Lottery has been submitted!

Thank you to all of the team for their dedicated time and hard work that has gone into preparing the documents (including over 40 appendices).
We'll be keeping our fingers crossed until we hear the result in early January 2016!

The Steering Group and Friends will continue to work raising the profile of the Pump Room Gardens over the next few months and we will keep you informed of any events and developments with the bid.

Thank you for your support.

Friends of the Pump Room Gardens
One of the biggest events in Leamington's calendar - the Food & Drink Festival takes place in the Pump Room Gardens this weekend ( 5-6 September). The festival will feature over 150 stalls, cookery classes and much more! Visit the website for more information >>

Information Displays

The Friends of Pump Room Gardens are holding displays 10am - 4pm :

  • on Saturday 5th September in All Saints Church (part of the Leamington History Fair) and
  • on Saturday 12th, Sunday 13th September in North Lodge (part of Heritage Open Days).

This is an opportunity to come and see the final plans, drawings and comments from the community with regard the proposed improvements to the Pump Room Gardens.

Did you know..?
In 1881, improvements were carried out at the west end the Pump Room Gardens including constructing a rockery and waterfall. The waterfall was powered by a steam pump at the Pump Rooms but seems to have been a heavy consumer of power and abandoned.
