A new look at the history of The Beulah Spa 1831-1856, a once popular natural saline spring and spa said by Faraday to be purer than Bath and Wells, containing more salts than the waters of Cheltenham. A very fashionable pleasure gardens designed by Decimus Burton and frequented by the rich and fashionable, the likes of Lady Essex, The Duke of Gloucester, Dickens, Thackeray, Kaiser Wilhelm, and even Queen Victoria and her children. Boasting grand fetes and galas, balloon ascents, tightrope walking, military bands, archery, a camera obscura, an octagonal reading room, gypsy fortune telling and a singing minstrel, the Beulah Spa reigned in Upper Norwood for over twenty years before the arrival of the Crystal Palace. This book features many colour drawings from its heyday during the reigns of William IV and Victoria.
