The Open Day is a great opportunity to explore Victoria Baths, and, on this rare occasion, experience it being used for its orginal purpose, swimming!
Everyone who comes to the Open Day will be able to view the swimming from the Gala Pool balcony. No booking is required for attending and specatating, just turn up on the day.
This is only the second day of public swimming in 25 years. All proceeds from the Swim for Restoration will go towards restoration work at Victoria Baths.
Swim tickets are available on Eventbrite at £15 (plus booking fee) for a 45 minute session. The link to the ticketing site is on this page right at the bottom under LINKS.
Our Tea Room will be serving a selection of refreshments, including sandwiches, cakes and hot and cold drinks. Hot Vimto and Bovril available for swimmers!
We're also delighted to be joined once again by The Hip Hop Chip Shop, with their hip hop inspired food truck selling the perfect accompaniment to swimming, fish and chips (delicious vegan options available). We'll have tables and chairs inside and out (here's hoping for sunshine!)
Our Gift Shop will also be open selling a great variety of items including books and handmade crafts.
Guided tours will take place throughout the day (no need to book in advance, you can arrange a tour at the entrance when you arrive).
