Leamington Caves is known for beautiful formations, one is called Statue of Liberty. Like all other caves of the island, it is connected with the sea and the clear pools contain seawater. The tides are clearly visible in the cave. It has been visited at least since the 1960s and was developed as a show cave. There must have been underground boat trips once, as there is an underground jetty. Many guidebooks mention the cave together with nearby Crystal Cave, which is a show cave with paths and electric light.
The cave is located off Harrington Sound Rd at Leamington Lane on a private property with a huge house and a guest house. At first, it was a popular wild cave, then it was developed with trails. It was known under the name Prospero's Magic Cave in the 1920s. In the late 20th century the house was a restaurant called Plantation Restaurant, the cave was open to the public, and restaurant guests had free entrance to the cave. Then it became the most popular Indian restaurant in Bermuda, the Bombay Bicycle Club. But the restaurant closed around 2000 and the cave was not accessible anymore. The building was used as a residential building.
But the property has new operators who renovated it and transformed it into an event venue named Leamington Caves. The cave was renovated, they are new wooden platforms and electric light. They say it is Bermuda’s largest private natural cave. Unfortunately, they do really communicate how the thing works. It seems obvious that the cave is accessible by guests, but they do not have open hours for other visitors. As the house also does not have open hours, no rates are given, and minimum booking is three days, we guess the house it not a normal hotel, we understand that they actually rent the whole house for short terms as an event location. They are also holding various events on the grounds to reintroduce Leamington Caves to the public. Nevertheless, the cave is now fully developed, and there are possibilities to visit the cave, so we classified it as a show cave.
