The historic Victoria Baths hold open days, usually on the second Sunday of each month from April to November, and guided building tours every Wednesday at 2pm. You can see the incredible stained glass and tile work, along with the three swimming...more

I have worked round the corner from the baths for 30 years and never had the time to visit until I retired. Wednesday afternoons you can get a guided tour for £6.95. The tour takes in how the baths came into being, how they were...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.

Hi David, could we please ask when you visited Victoria Baths on an Open Day with market/craft stalls? The building was originally open from 1906 - 1993 so there are still quite a lot of people around who remember it in operation.
We came here on a weekend open day. I have always wanted to visit since seeing the baths win 'Restoration' on the TV. I was not disappointed. We had a great guided tour with a really knowledgeable guide and also really enjoyed wandering around ourselves...More
Actually, I've never been inside, but since this place was quite close to my place, i used to take this route on my way home, only to enjoy the facade of this building, which is incredibly beautiful, a true gem of the mancunian architecture.
I'm a sucker for crumbling Victorian landmarks and this red brick giant is very much a work in progress. Knowledgeable guides lead regular tours on Wednesdays and there's an open day on the second Sunday of each month. The stained glass and the tiling are...More

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 excellent web site with lots of info about all the events. It's well worth a visit. Hope this helps.
