THANK YOU to The Sanctuary Spa in Covent Garden for inviting me to spend the day there with some friends. What an amazingly luxurious day we had. So lovely to be right in the heart of busy London and yet reclining on sun loungers or swimming in their famous pool or having a treatment. It’s like a rabbit warren when you get in there – all under the streets of London are rooms filled with hidden treasures.

Here are my two friends on arrival – literally round the corner from Covent Garden tube or a five minute walk from Leicester Square:-


The spa first opened its doors in 1977 and was created by a US Choreographer as a gift of love to his ballerina wife and it soon became a magical retreat for the dancers of the Royal Ballet to come and relax after training. I think I first went there in the 80’s and again in the 90’s and not much has changed.

Here is the main relaxation area:-

It’s most definitely something you should do for a day with girlfriends – so relaxing and rejuvenating. For the last 35 years they have continued offering their facilities to women whilst allowing them to enjoy precious time together with friends and family. Sanctuary Spa is a fun place for enjoyment, whether you’re indulging in a glass of bubbly while lounging by the serene Koi Carp pools, applying a Moroccan mud mask or feeling aches and pains dissolve under the skilled fingers of their therapists.
