About this event

A summer outing to photograph Manchester's Victoria Baths.

When Manchester City Council decided it had to close Victoria Baths in 1993, there was a vigorous reaction in the local community. Manchester residents greatly valued the Turkish baths, the Aeratone therapeutic bath, the swimming facilities, and the building itself.

The campaign to try and prevent closure of the Baths became the Friends of Victoria Baths and a charitable trust – the Victoria Baths Trust – was set up with the aim of fully restoring the building and bringing the Turkish Baths and at least one of the swimming pools back into public use.

The story has many ups and downs, including the amazing success on BBC’s Restoration series in 2003.

Now the building is partially restored, the Trust continues to work towards full restoration. The building has many interesting details from the bespoke tiling to the beautiful stained glass windows.

There will be a short introductory talk after which you will be free to explore and photograph this fascination building.

You may also pre-book a sandwich lunch in the Victoria Baths Tea Room at a cost of £5 per person, including tea/coffee, and a packet of crisps. Note that refreshments must be pre-booked when you buy your ticket.
