Let’s be real: London can be a stressful city to live in, however much you love it. Sometimes we all need to escape for a day trip or a weekend break. But when time is tight, or you just don't have the energy to plan an excursion outside the capital, a trip to a day spa can be a pretty dreamy way to recuperate and recharge. 

Our list of London’s best day spas range from affordable to luxurious to super-luxurious, and offer treatments ranging from standard massages to more alternative and unusual options. Block out your calendar, leave your phone in the locker and let yourself drift off in one of London’s best day spas.
