"I adore the building and it just drips with history. I believe it should be protected and restored for others to come and enjoy too!"

Victoria Baths and COVID-19 crisis
As a heritage building and a charity, we are dependent on our visitors and our supporters and we have had to close the building at least for April and May and possibly much longer. Please continue to support us during this challenging time. Here's a few suggestions for how you can help:
BACK THE BATHS Emergency Crowdfunding Appeal: we recently raised over £6,000 through our crowdfunder, a huge thank you to everyone who made a donation, we really appreciate your support.
DONATE NOW BY BANK TRANSFER: you can make a direct transfer to The Manchester Victoria Baths Trust. The account number is 65035968 and sort code is 08-92-50. Please use your surname as a reference and let Gwyneth know you've made a donation (email@example.com). See "Join the Friends" or "Monthly Giving" below if you'd like to make a regular payment.
SEND A CHEQUE: you can send a cheque made payable to "Victoria Baths Trust" to Victoria Baths, Hathersage Road, Manchester M13 0FE. Please send a note with your name, address and email so we can send a thank you and acknowledge receipt.
JOIN THE FRIENDS: just £20 a year will give you membership of the Friends of Victoria Baths, all of which goes towards keeping this beautiful building open to the public and making sure we can carry on with restoration work. Benefits include free entry to guided building tours and our weekend events annually, regular e-news, occasional discounts, early booking for swimming events and more. The form can be downloaded below, just complete, sign and return to us.
MONTHLY GIVING: from £5 a month will register you as a Restoration Supporter, with all funds going directly towards restoration of the building and entitling you to free entry to Open Days, weekly Guided Tours and an exclusive annual event just for Restoration Supporters. The forms can be downloaded below, just complete, sign and return to us and set up a standing order.
LEAVE A GIFT IN YOUR WILL: Leaving a gift in your Will is an important decision and the most personal gift you can make. If you would like to talk to someone about making a bequest to Victoria Baths Trust, or would like to declare a commitment you have already made, please contact Gwyneth on 0161 224 2020 or firstname.lastname@example.org
DONATE NOW: With Givey you can make a donation with your card online now HERE. Givey charges 5% on top of the donation amount, e.g. a £10 donation will cost £10.50, so that Victoria Baths receives every single penny of your donation (you can opt out of the 5% fee if you prefer). If you're able to GIFT AID your donation, we receive an extra 25% and it doesn't cost you a penny.
HERE to HELP
