Macildowie have been ‘Building Great Futures’ in Leamington Spa since 1993. Lemington is a spa town and civil parish in Warwickshire, England. The spa town was originally a small village called Leamington Priors, it grew into a spa town in the 18th century. The town has an estimated population of 52,213 and has easy links to London via railways.
Leamington Spa is named after the River Leam, which runs through the town. The spa waters had been known in Roman times, however, it wasn't until 1810, when the town's existing bath houses couldn't cope with visitor numbers when they built a new bath house north of the River Leam. The town became a popular spa resort attracting the wealthy and famous throughout the Georgian era, and resulted in Queen Victoria granting the town a 'Royal' prefix in 1858.
The popularity of the baths and waters in the 19th century led to the initial growth of the town, making tourism the primary industry at this time. Since then, Leamington has developed a strong retail and manufacturing industry, as well as an established digital media and video game industry. The town is a significant centre in video game development; companies based in the town include, Ubisoft, DNA Interactive, Pixel Toys, and Supersonic Software.
