A wellbeing spa is due to take over the site of an old bank to expand its services and accessibility.

The Float Spa, in Hove, has been based in Third Avenue since 2015, and is set to move into the building of the old HSBC bank on Church Road in a few months' time.

Camille Pierson, founder and managing director of The Float Spa, said: “The old bank is much bigger so it gives us more opportunity to grow.

“The biggest thing is that we will have full disabled access. We’re really looking forward to having ground floor access as it will open it up to the community.

The new venue will also offer a brand new underground meditation space alongside a café and shop, as well as four floatation rooms, two infrared saunas, a larger yoga and relaxation studio, and five therapy rooms.

Miss Pierson said: “There will be more job opportunities and we’ll be bringing a sense of community. We want to keep bringing positive mental, physical, and social wellbeing to the area.

“We are very excited to be able to grow in our much-loved community and cannot wait to make this old bank, Hove’s bank of wellness.”

The Float Spa is a health and wellbeing centre that offers therapies such as floatation, massage, osteopathy, physiotherapy and acupuncture.
