My friend (she's 50) is thinking of moving there by herself. We both lived in london so Leamington is attractive for the shops/nice architecture that she's used to, and a good train to london. She's already in the Midlands (Notts) but wants a quicker train to London and also to be closer to the West country.
Budget is quite low but good choice of flats there - that's a bonus too.
We both visited briefly but need more knowledge on pros and cons.
Apart from the town centre, are there any shopping malls that are indoor?) I don't think thinl so but in wimter it's a big bonus for her as she's got a medical condition. Also what is the local hospital like, good standard?
Are people quite friendly or a bit snobby (comparing to Chelteham here, which has this sort of type )?
