wonderful architecture - inside and out. A very interesting history and the stained glass throughout is a stunning surprise, worth going just for that. Guided tour maybe a mite over long but the guides are enthusiastic and love the place, as it should be loved.

I was so looking forward to seeing it again after 38 years, but not to be. It was not open, and, furthermore had not been restored. What a shame. Manchester is building modern sky scrapers everywhere, but they have insufficient funds to restore a national...More

Highly recommend a visit here. All so interesting and amazing, especially the stained glass. Went on a tour, which I highly recommend too. Free parking. Great photo exhibition, when I visited, as well as a great performance by the 'She Choir' of Manchester.

This was an amazing building! Loved the atmosphere and the green tiles throughout and it's only a shame that the baths have still yet to be fully restored to their former glory, but it's getting there slowly but surely. It's only a couple of miles...More

For a friend's birthday we came to watch clueless. Being in this old baths was such a novelty, props everywhere and a few food and drinks trucks (could have done with a few more). Super fun time and would love to do it again.

Only on certain dates. They have special days throughout the year when you can use the pool. You have to book in in advance. I think it costs about £15. These days are very popular and get booked very quickly. They have a... More
