Best spas in the UK: from log-fired hot tubs to salt scrub showers, revel in Britain's most luxurious spa retreats

Whether you're planning a girly catch-up or simply need some time out, nothing shouts indulgence like the prospect of a deluxe spa escape – and the UK’s full of them.

In London there’s the boutique Lalit in a Grade II listed building in London Bridge, the Four Seasons’ Trinity Square complete with futuristic spa facilities, and the luxury Curtain hotel and spa in Shoreditch.

In Nottinghamshire Ye Olde Bell hotel, set in a 17th-century inn, is has launched a high-end spa with an indoor to outdoor vitality pool, herbal laconium, 10 hot and cold sections and Britain’s only 'snowstorm' experience.

Happily, Britain is brimming with state-of-the-art retreats, from The Gilpin in Lake District - where you can wallow in a marathon three-hour treatment with swimming, massages and champagne - to the glorious Scarlet spa, with log-fired hot tubs perched on the Cornish coast.

These places are the very epitome of zen, with nothing more taxing to think of than where your next soothing silk body wrap is coming from.

Prepare to relax and unwind with serious dedication via our pick of the UK's finest lakeside, seaside and city-based spas, with a signature treatment for each.
