Harrogate Sulphur Soap

How it all started

Harrogate’s rich Spa heritage dates back to 1571 with the discovery of no less than 88 mineral springs, more than anywhere in Europe, Harrogate then achieved Spa status.

The Royal Pump Room is a Grade II listed building in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England. The waters from the natural spring upon which the Pump Room is built upon contains the greatest amount of sulphur of all of Harrogate’s many water springs

In the 19th century local pharmacists made their own soap in Harrogate, so effective because of the high mineral content of the spring waters. These waters became famous throughout Europe and it was the Sulphur Well known as the ‘Stinking Well’ renowned for its therapeutic properties. Harrogate Sulphur Soap products are a direct descendant of this memorable historical period.
