The famous Harrogate ‘English Spa’

With the discovery, the town was then christened with the name ‘The English Spa’. It was given the name as the springs were found to contain an abundance of amazing minerals including sulphur, iron and salt. This lead to worldwide wealthy visitors flocking to the small town to try the exclusive spa treatments created harnessing the beneficial spring water and and is still a popular tourist destination even now, all thanks to its famous mineral springs.
