Southam is a friendly English market town where visitors can immerse themselves in its heritage and historic architecture. The main shopping street runs through the centre of town and a weekly market is held on Wood Street every Tuesday.
Once famous for the minting of Southam’s own currency, you can today visit The Olde Mint public house on the main street. The grade II listed building and scheduled ancient monument of the Holy Well with its clear healing waters is just half a mile from the town centre and can be reached by a way-marked accessible trail.
With the impressive Dallas Burston Polo Club situated on the edge of the town, Southam is centrally located for many other attractions such as Warwick Castle, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Heritage Motor Centre, Bicester Shopping Village and National Trust’s Canon Ashby.
Southam was once a bustling transport hub in the heart of England, it now provides a calm alternative to the busy and commercialised Stratford and Warwick. Situated west of Rugby and north of Banbury with its own great transport links, Southam is surrounded by many pretty villages and the countryside is dotted with footpaths, bridleways, cycle routes, canals, and country pursuits aplenty. Maps, guides and trails for the town and area are available from the Visitor Information Point at Southam’s Library.
Discover, explore and enjoy Southam – it’s well worth a visit!
