About this event

WELCOME WEDNESDAYS

Guided Tour and General Entry

  • Visit an iconic Manchester landmark for free and take an optional guided tour (paid) of its partly-restored swimming pools, Turkish Baths and Superintendent's Flat.

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

Our entertaining and informative Discover Victoria Baths tours are conducted by experienced volunteer guides. Doors open at 11am for free general entry and the guided tour starts at 1pm, lasting approximately 1¼ hours.

Browse and buy souvenirs and gifts in our wonderful Gift Shop and visit our beautiful Tea Room with its stained glass windows and elaborate wrought iron ceiling , serving hot and cold drinks, snacks, a bookable Cream Tea and on 29th June/6th July Pimm's cocktails.

CREAM TEA - available from 22nd June

To make your visit extra-special, enjoy a delicious Cream Tea – a large fruit scone accompanied by butter, strawberry jam, clotted cream and tea or coffee. Jam first or cream... it’s up to you!

Priced at £5, you must book in advance.
