London was once blessed with numerous Spas set in gardens, where waters could be enjoyed in pleasant surroundings, sometimes accompanied by music. Some were simple establishments, others such as Bagnigge Wells, quite sophisticated. They were followed by pleasure gardens such as Vauxhall and Ranelagh. With the aid of attractive historic images, the author has written the definitive account of these many places in north, south and west London. A thoroughly researched but never dull guide to pleasures now gone of the past.
