Our fascinating day in the elegant Leamington Spa will start with our first views of the late Art Deco Rangemaster Offices moments before arrival, getting us in the mood for a brief encounter with the Art Deco station. Tour highlights will include local architect, Henry Fedeski’s Festival-style library (1959-60) and stunning Our Lady's church (1963), both listed, as well as two housing estates and other buildings by Frederick Gibberd who was born and brought up nearby.

The tour will be a mix of walking and coach.  There will be a stop for lunch (please note that you will need to arrange your own and the cost is not included).
