Spa Towns: A Living Spa Tradition in the Cotswolds

Whilst many of our traditional Spas are no longer used for bathing, the medical, cultural and architectural inheritance of Britain's 18th century spa heyday remains. Spa Towns continue to attract visitors from all over the world, drawn by beautiful buildings, parks, gardens, theatre, festivals, museums and the availability of a wide range of complementary therapies.

Encouraged by the renewed interest in health tourism and natural medicine, many of Britain's Spa Heritage Towns are looking afresh at the natural springs to which they owe their fame and fortune, including Bath and Cheltenham in the Cotswolds.

These are two of the most beautiful towns, well worth exploring in addition to enjoying the natural spring bathing facilities. They offer wonderful days out, short breaks and healthy holidays.

Other Spa Places

Although the mineral waters of Spa towns Bath and Cheltenham may not be taken as they were in days gone by, the allure of a relaxing break and taking some "me" time is still a contributing factor when deciding on where to holiday.

The Cotswolds offers this in abundance with a variety of modern spas offering health, beauty and relaxation packages to suit.
