Based at the heart of Coventry and Warwickshire, Leamington Spa is home to one of the UK’s largest gaming clusters and is still considered by many to be a hidden gem in the world of games development. Nicknamed ‘Silicon Spa’, the cluster employs over 2500 highly skilled people, which equates to over 10% of today’s UK total working in the industry.
The history of Silicon Spa goes back over 30 years and the local area can count key industry names amongst its residents, with Codemasters, SEGA and Ubisoft among the studios in the region. From Guitar Hero Live to the Forza series some of your household favourites have been developed right here.
With over 50 studios operating from within Silicon Spa and over 80 across Coventry and Warwickshire, it’s a fantastic hub of creative design and digital business growth.
At Interactive Futures we celebrate the successes of Silicon Spa and also consider its positioning in the wider video games industry. Whether you’re already based here, or looking to relocate, you can find out how to benefit from what the area has to offer.
