Droitwich Spa


The historic ‘salt’ town of Droitwich Spa offers plenty for Droitwich Spa September 13th 2014 Salt Festvisitors to see and enjoy.  The town owes its existence to its natural brine springs, which emanate from subterranean beds of pure rock salt 200ft below the ground. Dissolved by underground springs, artesian pressure forces the salt to the surface as brine, where its density and buoyancy are only rivalled by the Dead Sea.



The town blends old and new and is a place of great charm and character.  The long association with Salt is evident in many areas of the town, particularly in the historic High Street where buildings lean at interesting angles due to brine extraction.


Droitwich Spa has an assortment of leisure activities available including guided walks, an open air lido and two well maintained Green Flag parks. The restored Droitwich canal network is a haven for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers. There are enough shops and eating places to keep visitors happy along with numerous the festivals and markets that take place throughout the year.  Popular festivals include St Richards Boat and Car Festival in May, Droitwich Food and Drink Festival in June; and Salt Fest in September.


The town’s proximity to the M5 and direct bus and railway connections to Worcester and Birmingham, make it an ideal place to stay and explore the beautiful surrounding Worcestershire countryside.
