Droitwich... Rich In History, Culture, & Fun
So Much To Discover ...
Welcome To The Land Of Salt
The historic town of Droitwich Spa: Surrounded by the beautiful Worcestershire countryside, it is a town of great charm offering its visitors plenty to see and enjoy.
The town has been the site of a settled community for over 2000 years. It owes its existence to the natural brine springs which emanate from subterranean beds of pure rock salt 2000ft below the ground. Dissolved by underground springs, artesian pressure forces the sale to the surface as brine. It's density and buoyancy are only rivalled by the Dead Sea.
