People seem to be surprised when I tell them about spa towns in the UK, but Britain has a long history of "taking the waters".
The Romans discovered the healing benefits of natural spa waters thousands of years ago. And we're lucky enough to have so many mineral-rich springs in Britain which we continue to enjoy. Why not go with the flow and experience the therapeutic waters of one of Britain's best spa towns?
It's the time of year when the UK is filled with the sights and sounds of ghosts and ghouls: Halloween. Halloween is one of the best times to visit London. During Halloween there are lots of parties and many events are organized across the city to celebrate All Hallow's Eve. One of the most famous events is the London Ghost Festival, which is celebrated every year for one week in the month of October and lasts till the night of Halloween itself.
