Relax in Harrogate’s Turkish Baths & Health Spa

Harrogate, North Yorkshire

Mix lavish 19th-century glamour with contemporary spa indulgences in these elaborate Turkish baths, recently restored to their former glory.

For centuries stylish visitors have flocked to the spa town of Harrogate to ‘take the waters’ and enjoy a regime of restoration and relaxation. With 88 springs, ‘the English spa’ became the preferred destination for European high society. Magnificent hotels were built alongside state of the art spa and leisure facilities, which help give the town its elegance today.  

The flamboyant Royal Baths first opened in 1896; Victorians were enthralled by Moorish designs, great Islamic arches and screens, wall of vibrant glazed brickwork, the arabesque painted ceilings and Italian-laid terrazzo floors.  

Following a £10m refurbishment, today’s spa visitors can enjoy these truly unique surroundings as they relax and unwind in the heated chambers, steam room, invigorating plunge pool or elegant Frigidarium.  

The Turkish Baths & Health Spa are in Harrogate, 204 miles (328km) north of London.
