Welcome Wednesdays

23 Mar 2022 11:00 -
26 Oct 2022 15:00

Adults: Free/Donations Welcome

EVERY WEDNESDAY from 23rd March to 26th October 2022, Victoria Baths is open to visitors between 11am and 3pm.

  • Entry is FREE and you don't need to pre-book, just turn up. We may occasionally have to close at short notice, for reasons outside our control, so we'd recommend you check our website/social media before setting out from home. 

  • Guided Building Tours every Wednesday at 1pm - £8. Join our tour guides for a deep dive into the past and present use of Victoria Baths.

  • If you can afford to make a donation during your visit, please do. You can help us to look after Victoria Baths for everyone to enjoy and explore. We have two contactless donation points and cash donation boxes too. 

  • Volunteer-run Tea Room open serving hot and cold drinks, cakes, crisps and biscuits. Sorry no sandwiches (we only open the Tea Room for four hours a week), but feel free to bring your own lunch and buy a drink/cake from us. 

  • Gift Shop open for cards, tea towels, tote bags and our very own Victoria Baths Small Batch Gin 

  • Visit the Manchester landmark that won BBC Two's first Restoration programme in 2003 and explore its partly-restored swimming pools, Turkish Baths and Superintendent's Flat. 

  • Grade II* listed, the building is remarkably intact, with beautiful stained glass windows, amazing wall tiles and incredible mosaic flooring behind the imposing exterior. 

  • Victoria Baths served the community for 86 years with three swimming pools, Turkish Baths, a Laundry, Slipper Baths and an Aerotone. 

  • The building is hired out for events, photoshoots and filmings and we try really hard to make sure that this doesn't affect our visitors on a Wednesday. However, some spaces may be shut on the day you visit.
