The cosmopolitan charm, character and elegant architecture of the town owes much of its heritage as a fashionable Victorian Spa and today, with its beautiful floral displays, 200 acres of green lawns known as The Stray, famous Turkish Baths, arts and crafts shops, and a reputation as the antiques centre of the north, it is a very attractive and popular visitor destination.
