The stunning natural wonders of the Yorkshire landscape, featuring rock formations, waterfalls and gorges, are to be found in the beautiful area surrounding the spa town of Harrogate. The local sulphur water, on which the town built its fame, is proudly celebrated at the Royal Pump Room and continues to play a large part in attracting visitors to the area.
The historic Turkish Baths, popular with royalty during Victorian times, still provides a whole host of treatments in virtually unchanged surroundings with beautiful and ornately tiled walls and floors.
The town provides an impressive range of modern style spa hotels and health clubs promoting health and well-being, which are often set in stunning parkland and woodland.
