Harrogate is where the Victorians used to retreat to take the waters. Today the spa town still has a reputation for welcoming guests with its healing atmosphere. Showcasing some of the UK’s most exceptional, best selling spas, it includes the likes of Rudding Park. Incorporating health and wellbeing rituals from around the world, the spa has a place for groups, couples, solo spa goers and friends looking to celebrate special occasions. Like many of the best hotel and spa experiences in North Yorkshire, Rudding Park also offers variety in terms of experience as well. Visit for a health spa retreat or for a truly decadent escape complete with afternoon teas and award-winning dining.
Head to Whitby and you will find more of the region’s award-winning spas in the form of Raithwaite Estate Yorkshire Coastal Retreat. It is a place where no detail goes unnoticed and the grounds provide a sense of total escapism whilst also being within easy reach of the tourist attractions of Whitby itself.
For history fans, few places could provide more beautiful historic leisure experiences than Ripon. Close to the awe-inspiring Fountains Abbey as well as an abundance of country houses that you can visit, stay at Swinton Park or pop in for a day spa experience. Alternatively, the adult-only Coniston Spa is an exceptional spa experience for groups. Plenty of space means everyone has individual quality time, but the luxury credentials do not compromise the health experience, while extra activities and outdoor pursuits give you a superb introduction to country life. The fact that it is all surrounded by the most exceptional Yorkshire scenery as well really is the cherry on top.
