wonderful architecture - inside and out. A very interesting history and the stained glass throughout is a stunning surprise, worth going just for that. Guided tour maybe a mite over long but the guides are enthusiastic and love the place, as it should be loved.

Attended a friends wedding here and it was amazing! The venue is so cool and the way they reuse it for various different events is brilliant.

Highly recommend a visit here. All so interesting and amazing, especially the stained glass. Went on a tour, which I highly recommend too. Free parking. Great photo exhibition, when I visited, as well as a great performance by the 'She Choir' of Manchester.

This was an amazing building! Loved the atmosphere and the green tiles throughout and it's only a shame that the baths have still yet to be fully restored to their former glory, but it's getting there slowly but surely. It's only a couple of miles...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... More

There isn’t a car park, there is limited parking next to the baths, otherwise you park in the streets nearby
