Yorkshires Floral Spa Town
In 1571 Captain William Slingsby accidentally discovered a mineral spring which reminded him of the healing waters he had drunk in Europe.

Visitors of the highest quality came here: european royalty, politicians , poets and authors like Lord Byron and Agatha Christie. . . and now, you are invited too ! perhaps not to cure your ills but to stroll through the elegant streets and parks of the most elegant town in Yorkshire.
