We may love London, but none of us can deny that it can be quiet a stressful city to live in. We all need that little break once in a while to escape the fast-paced lifestyle that is inevitable when living in a cosmopolitan environment.
Finding energy to commute out of the city is often near impossible in an average Londoner’s calendar. Fortunately, Chelsea is a hotspot for some of the best spas in London.
Spas have been known as places of healing for thousands of years. Even though today’s spas are miles from the warm mineral springs favoured by the natives and the Roman soldiers, they still promise relaxation, rejuvenation and a renewed sense of purpose.
Read on to discover a list of the best ones to visit, whatever your reasons to escape may be. Get healthy, loose weight, relax, eat well and detox!
