Warwick

The largest town in Warwickshire, Warwick is located on the River Avon. It is home to Warwick Castle, which was originally built in 1070 and has since been used as a fortress during times of conflict including both World Wars. The castle now operates as a tourist attraction complete with restaurants, shops and medieval reenactments throughout the year.

Leamington Spa

Situated in Warwickshire’s south-east corner, Leamington Spa is perhaps best known for its Victorian architecture and spa waters which were said to have healing properties. Today, Leamington Spa is a vibrant town with a lively arts scene and plenty of restaurants and bars.

Whilst the house look lovely, the site being finished around 2 years ago. And since this point we are no further forward in resolving this major failure.
