Set on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, this prosperous spa town channels the elegance of the 18th century, when wealthy visitors came to bathe in its waters. This has left a legacy of extravagant hotels, green open spaces and lovely parks and gardens. You can still bathe in the luxurious Turkish Baths and the focus is on leisure and fun.
