From the Georgian crescents that attracted the gentry of the leisured age after Waterloo to the thriving, modern industrial units on the edge of town this promotional film aims to depict Royal Leamington Spa as both a historical tourist attraction and a place to settle. Paul and Susan certainly seem happy as no sooner has their introductory tour finished, Paul has a job with a local firm, and Susan is wheeling a pram through Jephson Gardens.
