A city spa break can be as short or as long as you like. It can be a moment of relaxation and wellness to make the world slow down or a chance to feel your best before a night out. Either way, there’s a touch of glamour that’s unique to a city spa break.
In the winter months there’s a sparkling beauty to city spa breaks. There’s a sense of festivity in the air and party pampering has that extra touch of excitement to it. Equally, as the weather turns harsh on our skin and our souls, the restorative powers of a thermal suite and a good winter spa treatment go a long way to healing mind and body.
Meanwhile, in the summer months we might all be dreaming of white sandy beaches, but from London to Brighton, Newcastle to Birmingham, city spas have a way of making you feel like you’ve had a complete escape, even if it’s just on a twilight city spa visit.
The House of Elemis in London is a pampering treat best savoured by yourself or with one much-loved friend. When it comes to luxury spa treatments, their facials are targeted, for visible results. Meanwhile, amidst the buzz of Brighton you’re invited to feel like a starlet at The Grand with views of the sea and a touch of Hollywood. Then again, those in Ireland are in for a treat at the stylish Montenotte Hotel, with its unique sunken Victorian garden and sumptuous interior design.
Think of us when you’re having your cocktails at the Varsity Hotel and Spa’s rooftop garden with its 360° spectacular views across the Cambridge skyline...
