There are many attractions to visit, beautiful parks, gardens and buildings of outstanding quality from every period of the last thousand years.
Warwick's mainly independent businesses offer an enticing blend of the old and the new - from gift shops, antique centres and traditional tea rooms to trendy boutiques, art galleries and fine restaurants.
Warwick is blessed with beautiful parks and gardens all within easy walking distance of the town centre.
Warwick has a good selection of quality independent hotels and guest houses in the town centre, a few larger chain hotels on the edge of town and some beautiful properties in the surrounding countryside.Leamington’s largest club is the end of the road for most pub crawlers. Evolve has the dubious accolade of one of the best student nights in Leamington. It’s the home of Notorious Mondays, Jaegermonster on a Friday and, wait for it, a fancy dress night on a Saturday.
Warwick Castle is a great day out, you will see great halls, beautiful landscapes; mournful dungeons and high towers - but you'll also see people having fun, laughing and being amazed. We have eleven hundred years of history, but also great battles, ancient myths, spellbinding tales, pampered princesses, heroic knights, Merlin's Dragon, and the dark Castle Dungeon. Warwick Castle is a great destination for the Party Ambulance to drop you off at.
Here are the top 5 places that 999 Pink Party Bus recommends to party the night away in and around the Warwick area.

After being taken over by Smack this year, Evolve really has...well...evolved into a pretty decent night out. If three rooms, three bars and a few stripper poles are not enough for you, then you really are asking for too much.
Smack is the perfect escape for those who don’t appreciate listening to LMFAO on repeat. The intimate space, decorated with profanities and nude pictures, plays host to Dubstep and D&B legends on a weekly basis.
Whilst upstairs looks like the Bat Cave, the LED room epitomises a raver’s paradise. Tuesday’s Silver has an amazing atmosphere and great drinks offers. Don’t forget to head to Moo Bar before to get queue jump to avoid waiting for hours in the cold!
3. Warwick SU
There’s so much going on at the SU, it would be a sin to be bored on campus! Whether you’re a party animal or just prefer a quiet pint, there is something for everyone. Look out for live music shows, like Beats and Bars and Unplucked, showcasing Warwick’s finest musical and literary talents.
Alternatively head on over to POP! on a Wednesday for your weekly dose of fancy dress and cheesy pop music – perhaps the only good night at the Union. And don’t forget to put One World Week in your diaries! "The Largest Student-run International Event in the World" unites and celebrates over 120 different nationalities. It’s a weeklong party – what isn’t there to love?
If you’re sick of the Bubble and Leamington has no appeal anymore, then why not hop on the Uniexpress to Kasbah. It’s a 15 minute bus ride to Coventry, but you’ll get to experience a taste of Morocco without having to hop on a plane.
This independent nightclub has tried to draw upon the decadence of a Moroccan palace, unfortunately spending most of its efforts making the outside area nicer than the inside. But at least if one of the four bars inside is busy, then you can head outside to the heated patio and BBQ pit.
If you’re not a fan of clubs, then Kasbah is a fantastic live music venue. It has hosted international acts, like Calvin Harris, and helped boost the status of local acts.
5. Bars & Pubs on the Parade
Ok, so there are probably more working men’s clubs in Leamington Spa than there are nightclubs. Not to worry! There are more than enough pubs and bars to make up for it. Take a trip down south to visit Kelsey’s, birth place of the Eliminator, or head on over to the Fox and Vivienne for 60p shots on a Monday.
Saints Bar and Loose Box are fast becoming student hotspots in Leamington. Le Dice at Saints Bar on a Thursday is a great way to mix with the international student community at Warwick. You don’t have to pay entry to most bars and pubs, so if you don’t like it, then just move on.
