Me and my partner attended a gin festival here. Its cold so take a warm jacket. Amazing interior that might be due a revamp but the charm remains!

If you have a spare afternoon the architecture is interesting but does not warrant a full day out, coupled with manchester museum, whit worth art gallery and the holy name church with plenty of places to eat out or on a nice day take a packed lunch.

I went to school in the area and we visited the baths as something of a memory jogger. I'd also used the turkish baths some years later. The place is identical to what I remember and my recollections of green tiles all over the place were spot on. I bought a mug in the souvenir shop that cracked on first... More

I have been here a few times now for various fairs and even a wedding and I absolutely love this building. This is a marvel of Victorian architecture and I love walking around. I recently visited both the glass fair and the vintage home show and its great to see so many people enjoying the building. I will definitely be... More

Had an outing to the Victorian Baths today and what a wonderful building. In its heyday it must have been simply great. The tiling and architecture are something to see and the leaded windows are just wonderful. considering they have been in all those years the colours are great how lucky were people in 1906? It is going to take... More

Lovely building, about 8-10 minutes from the city centre. Inside is jaw dropping. We attended the Indy man beer con there this week, the location and surroundings definitely made it better. Great atmosphere in a gem of the city.

If oyu are in town on a Wednesday from April to October, then try not to miss the 2pm tour of the Victoria Baths. This great Victorian building was derelict until a few years ago, and is being slowly but surely brought back to its original glory. There have been several rounds of refurbishment of various parts of the structure,... More
