I've never been to a Turkish baths before. I misguidedly thought I'd be fastened in a box with just my head sticking out of the top. This was not the case Im glad to say. Bob, who showed us round, was hilarious and explained all about the baths, the building and the history of it. There are several 'hot' rooms,... More

Well I was visiting harrogate and I heard so much about the baths. So I went to this particular one. The design of the building inside is very exquisite, you will feel like you are in another country. That's the main thing because the bath being Turkish styled.The price to access the spa facilities isn't that bad either. But there's... More

I have just visited this morning , I have been twice before and loved both times so much. I do feel this morning was let down slightly by the staff walking round while you were in the Turkish baths watching your every move. It would have been so relaxed but for this - I do realise they have to show... More

Lovely girls trip! Bob showed us round and gave detailed advice about the order to shower, steam and plunge, relax, drink water and generally make the most of our time. Service was excellent from start to finish. Not the cheapest activity but worth every penny. Next time I'll take a book to relax with. Magazines are provided though. Stunning decor... More

Despite the name, the only thing resembling a bath here is an icy cold plunge pool! The experience of this place is centered around a series of hammams of varying temperatures. They give you plenty of towels and instruction about how long to stay in each and how often to come out and shower off and/or jump in the plunge... More

even though it is much smaller than when it was first built you get a feeling for the grandeur of Victorian England. We had a massage in the spa which was first class. A great aspect of the baths is the ladies only period. Staff great and all seem to have been educated on the spa's history. Well worth the... More

I have been several times and took a friend of mine who was over from Bermuda when we had some time to kill. Tip: don't treat it as a flying visit; set aside several hours & take a book and/or some music and prepare to set up camp to properly relax over several hours. + service was very good &... More

When ever I feel stressed or very cold in the winter I visit the baths and book a massage. To take advantage of the 3 hour session get there for the start and stay the whole session. Have any treatments after the baths to make the most of your time, you can have a light lunch to extend your day.... More

Visited this attraction with a mixed group on a very rainy Saturday!! A great experience in such a wonderful building. Only recently refurbished after being closed for some time. The baths are a real delight - gorgeous decor lovingly restored with original tile flooring. Your are taken through various heated areas ranging from a frigitarium(allegedly cool) to the very hot...

Went to the Turkish baths in Harrogate town and they are really lovely inside with all the colourful tiles etc. There is a ladies afternoon and they also have mixed sessions. There are 3 levels of sauna from 40 degrees right up to 70 degrees (I could feel my ears burning at the hottest level). There is also a steam... More
