About Southam

The pretty market town of Southam lies on the River Stowe and, due to its size and history, is often regarded as the younger sister of nearby Royal Leamington Spa and Warwick.

Conveniently located near to the M40, Southam also lies around 10 miles from Rugby and around 15 miles east of Stratford upon Avon. The town can trace its history back to Anglo-Saxon times and both King Charles 1 and Oliver Cromwell are reputed to have stayed here in the 16th and 17th centuries.

Due to its good road links, modern Southam has become a popular commuter area for those working in Coventry, Warwick, Rugby and Leamington. Yet with a population of around just 7,000 people, it has managed to retain much of its close sense of community. With a number of highly-rated schools, some good value housing and very low crime rates Southam is an attractive location for growing families.


The town’s housing stocks comprise a handful of properties dating back to the Tudor period, along with a large supply of 1960’s semi-detached family homes. Developers discovered the area’s potential during the 1980’s resulting in a swathe of newer and more modern estates catering for the four and five bedroom market. A range of period properties are also available in the surrounding villages.

Southam offers a good range of sport and leisure facilities, convenient supermarkets and other amenities along with the centuries-old Mop Fair that visits the town and the surrounding area every year.
