I spent the day at The Varsity using their facilities and then having an Elemis facial with Nicky, who was very good. Nicky was very professional and gave me a wonderful facial using the luxury Elemis products. Would definitely visit again.

I frequently use the spa facilities and book treatments at Glassworks (usually massage, I'd definitely recommend the Elemis Rhythmic pressure massage). Every time I've had a pleasant experience, it's clear the beauty team know their stuff and I always leave feeling relaxed. The facilities are...More

They do great massages here, matched to your preference for firmness. Take time to visit the Spa after all your stress is drained, or enjoy lunch at the Varsity’s Six restaurant next door. A very relaxing experience all round. Worth the cost.
