Went to the vintage fair. Walked to it from our house on a Sunday morning which took about an hour. The fair was okay but I think we got more out of looking around the baths and finding out a bit about it.

We were so disappointed that it is only open to visitors on a Wednesday and some Sunday in the month...

A great trip back in time when going swimming was something special. This is like a museum dedicated to bathing with lots of original features retained. The cafe is cheap too with drinks starting from 30p! Don't forget your camera, there are some brilliant photo ops -Turkish baths, two drained swimming pools (you can actually get in one!) and an old fashioned type of Jacuzzi called the Aeratone. Please support this great initiative to get the baths up and running again!

This is a real gem of a place to see, pity they need lots more cash to continue their brilliant project. so glad this place has been saved. The guide we had was knowledgeable and made the tour exceedingly interesting so come on folks visit and give as generously as you are able so that the enthusiastic team can continue their sterling work. They have done so much already but obviously have loads more to do.

This baths hold so much history. It is amazing that it has now been beautifully restored and re-open to the public again. Truly a hidden gem!
