Ilkley & Ilkley Moor

Ilkley's Historic Spa Walk
In this walk you will be sent back to an era that made Ilkley's spa so famous. In Victorian times, people used to bathe directly in the therapeutic streams above Ilkley in "Hydropathic Establishements" such as the White Wells. Today, this side of Ilkley Moor is still very popular with joggers, dog-walkers and tourists alike.
