Spa Days In London
The royals of England and Europe have long enjoyed the luxury of spa treatments. Spa treatment and spa days have existed for thousands of years, the Romans and Greeks amongst many other ancient empires were famous for their luxurious bathing. The word ‘spa’ itself and the types of spas we find today were formed throughout the 16th and 17th centuries where Elizabeth I began to open up springs to the public, liberalising the practice of bathing which was previously thought of as sinful. The Stuarts took things a bit further, forming larger public spas where commoners and royalty could enjoy springs as one!
As time progressed, the spa as we know it today developed – a calming, peaceful and serene place where people can look after themselves in luxury. Of course, whilst public baths became very common throughout period era England, spas have also retained their exclusive and luxurious side. Everyone ranging from Florence Nightingale to Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde have enjoyed the glorious spas of England. If you’re looking for a way to start your London spa experience then look no further than the Montcalm spa, the perfect place from which to unwind from a long exciting day of living it up in London’s luxurious lifestyle.
