The Peak District is famed for its mineral springs and spas, first discovered by the Romans almost a thousand years ago, but it was the Victorians that exploited and enjoyed the health-giving properties of hydropathic treatment, transforming Buxton, Matlock and Matlock Bath into Spa Towns and leaving a legacy of inspiration and architectural features for future generations.
You may not be able to take a dip in a Roman Bath these days, and many of the Victorian and Edwardian Hydros have long since disappeared, but there are a variety of accommodation providers with pool or spa facilities, offering a dash of hydropathic treatment and the chance for a quick dip.
