Sheffield is an enigmatic city that has been at the heart of any number of world famous events. Well known for its steel production which fuelled much of the industrial revolution, and for its Crucible theatre, home of the annual Snooker World Championships, Sheffield has also been the melting pot out of which many major music movements have arisen. All of this might create the impression that Sheffield is not a city inclined towards taking it easy. You might be surprised then, to learn that Sheffield is home to a big selection of top quality spas, places where hard working denizens and visitors alike can go to relax and refresh. To find out about some of the best spas available in this venerable city take a look at Britain’s Finest.
