Warwick Services is a motorway service station on the M40 motorway in Warwickshire, England. It is situated approximately 5 miles (8 km) south-east of Warwick and is owned by Welcome Break.

It is situated on two bases at each side of the motorway, and was opened in early 1996 as the second of four service stations which serve the M40. It was the second of four service stations to open on the motorway.

Throughout 2007 the northbound Days Inn hotel was closed as the ground floor had completely flooded, although it has since reopened.[2]

Until recently[when?] they had to be signed as 'Welcome Break Coffee Primo' as they only recently gained a KFC outlet. The southbound services were one of the first to gain a KFC facility.

Cultural references

The northbound services featured in an episode of Top Gear.
