In partnership with the wonderful Leamington History Group.

Join local author Adam Wood for a walk on the dark side of the streets, with true crime tales from Leamington's grim history on almost every corner.
Hear of the wife of a renowned Leamington doctor who was poisoned by their servant, why a local man just returned from military service burned his mother to death, and what happened when Scotland Yard detectives visited Leamington to question a man who had confessed to the brutal murder of a soldier in what was a nationwide tragedy. And that’s not to mention the baby farm discovered on Park Street, where desperate young women took their infants to avoid local disgrace...

The walk is one and a half miles long, with just a few steps, and starts outside the Fox & Vivian pub at 32 Clarendon Avenue. It lasts 90 minutes, and ends outside the Royal Pump Rooms.
