A great day out. Vintage fair followed by a guided tour of the restored Edwardian baths. Amazing guide, very knowledgable, kids enjoyed it as much as we adults did. We'll definitely go again.

A great site to cost when in the area. The locals tend to have a lot of memories of the days when it was functional. What a nice building to have been saved and restored. Not a very big place so about an hour is good to enjoy the building. I went when the vintage fair was on so was... More

Went last Sunday and had a great time. You can take the tour or wander round freely. Very interesting and has been restored back to original time. Well worth a visit.

We catered for a wedding here in August 2013, this is a fantastic wedding venue it still has all the old changing rooms around the pool, lot of beautiful architecture in this building you will get some great photographs at the front of the building and you can hire the whole building so you can have a great party there.

I went as part of a planned guided tour. It was fascinating. The guide told us a lot about its history including the social aspects and the pecking order in those days - first class males, second class males and (tut tut) females last!! I'm from Bury but the Baths reminded me of the old Bury Public Baths that I... More

Beautiful old bath house block on the middle of a relatively run-down part of Manchester behind the University and MRI; open at slightly odd times and has had a rough ride recently as a permanent use for it is proving difficult to work out; keep an eye out for special open days

Love this on the outside but a bit disappointing to start with. Really enjoyed the building but as a tourist attraction its a bit disappointing.

We had the best of both worlds...a rummage round some vintage stalls and a look around the splendid Victorian baths. The painstaking restoration is still ongoing but all of the rooms were open to view and the original changing cubicles were being used by the stall holders for trying on - great photos! Stunning original features all over the building... More
