Jephson Gardens, Leamington Spa

Once a place for only the wealthy to appreciate, Leamington Spa's Jephson Gardens sits near the center of town and is a local favorite. Existing since 1834, this park extends for 5.9 hectares (14.6 acres), providing plenty of space for you to stroll among the flower displays. Take in the park's tranquility while relaxing in the Aviary Cafe, located in a restored tea pavilion. Feed the ducks on the lake or rent a boat and explore the neighboring River Leam. Be sure to see the "Glasshouse," a multi-temperature zone growing different plant species, and the stone sculptures within.

  • Love this place. My first visit. Love the gardens and especially the Hot House. Lovely little cafe in the park. Very well tended gardens and accessible from Leamington town. Various entrances.
  • I love it here. My children love climbing all the wonderful trees. I can easily spend all day here and in the adjacent park and gardens.
  • You've got to love Jephson Gardens! Lovely for a stroll and usually relatively busy, especially on a sunny day. There's a greenhouse in the middle of the park with some more exotic plants and trees. Great for a picnic too!
  • Beautiful Gardens. Stunning to stroll around on A sunny Sunday, greenhouse with fish and tropical plants in it half way around and a great cafe too. Fed the ducks on the large pond too 😁
  • Gardens looked spectacular in an array of purple, mauve & white. Really enjoyed the rendition of 1940s music provided by the very talented brass band. Also took photos of the tame squirrels. Thoroughly enjoyed the Bank Holiday Sunday afternoon with friends from Hertfordshire that were very impressed.
