City Dweller Magazine have teamed up with the guys at Welcome to Yorkshire to look at some Yorkshire days out. Here’s one of their suggestions with all the makings for a great day out.
If you’re saving the pennies and trying a staycation, Harrogate is the place for you.
Harrogate’s Turkish Baths will give you the perfect opportunity to put your feet up and relax.
The Moorish Archways, mosaic floors and authentic Turkish spa rooms will ensure you discover inner tranquillity and truly switch off.
Guests can visit a variety of spa rooms, from the steam room, the Laconium and the relaxation room, guaranteed to cleanse your skin and detoxify the body. Don’t forget- a quick dip in the plunge pool has been used for thousands of years as the ultimate stress-busting experience.
For a total treat, guests can book a number of massages and treatment packages, including hot stone therapy, Indian head massages, aromatic full body massages and bespoke facial treatments.
But a visit to Harrogate wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Betty’s Tea Rooms, so why not round off your relaxing Turkish staycation with a spot of truly British afternoon tea?
Or better still, stop off at RHS Harlow Carr Gardens just outside of Harrogate, which is home to over 68 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens and tranquil woodland. Plus, there’s a Bettys Tea Room on site, so it’d be two birds with one stone!
There’s no need to jet off this summer when you can sit back, relax, and put your feet up in the very heart of Yorkshire
