Waterfall Spa, Leeds
In the heart of Leeds city centre, Waterfall Spa is a luxurious ladies-only day spa which aims to provide an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With everything from an aromatherapy room to a 'tropicarium' (described as a Norwegian take on the sauna, without the intense searing heat and thus kinder to delicate skin), this is the perfect place for a girly day out.
