Of all the spas in the UK, some of the best spas are probably found in the capital. Spas in London are bound to be top class, with brand new concept spas jostling for attention with the more sedate country house style spa hotels and health farms. Find yourself an absolutely delicious pamper day in London, searching our extensive database of spas and gift vouchers for pamper days.
Enjoy the best possible attention and some absolutely first class hospitality as you settle into your relaxing stay in a spa, away from the noise and smell of London, but close enough to be right where it's at.
There's no shortage of spas in London to tempt you, and if you just want a taster of what you can get from a spa, you could start off with a health club like the Riverside Health and Racquets Club in Chiswick or venture closer to the City with a day spa experience at the Dove Spa at Virgin Active, Mayfair. The great advantage of a sneaky pamper day in one of the health club spas is that you get to combine the familiar - great pools and relaxation areas, excellent gym facilities and a great range of fitness classes to choose from - with the treat of a spa day. Don't be afraid to ask about treatments and beauty options, because the beauty therapists all know their stuff!
Dove Spas also offer holistic options and perfectly tailored skincare solutions for busy people on the lookout for a beauty treatment that really works for them. Saks also know a thing or two about hair and beauty and have a really good list of London spas to choose from.
Don't overlook the spa hotels in London if you're only looking for a pamper day, either. Many of them have taster days and options for mums and daughters, mums-to-be, couples days and pamper days. You could book a day in an upmarket London spa for a classy hen trip, or treat someone to a voucher from SpaSeekers as a gift to say 'take it easy' or 'thank you'.
The reputation of some of the spas in London is hard to beat. Day spas such as Citypoint offer everything
from beauty therapy and manicures to hi-tech non-invasive treatments and holistic massage. K-West is just super-swanky and the Spa at London Marriott County Hall has to be seen to be believed, steeped in history and boasting some of the most fantastic views from the pool and gym - not to forget the relaxing cocktail bar of course.
The beauty of a spa break in London is that it can be adapted to suit any occasion. You can add on a bit of retail therapy, ideally you could book the spa after you've been traipsing around Covent Garden or Oxford Street, and treat yourself to a massage, facial or luxury pedicure after a long day. A session under hydrotherapy water jets is perfect for relieving stress after a long day of sightseeing (or indeed, commuting) and a beauty treatment or two can be just the thing to get rid of the grime of the Big City.
