Located in the Chorlton-on-Medlock area of ​​Manchester, this Grade II listed Edwardian Turkish bath and pool complex is a true hidden gem. The baths opened to the public in 1906 but closed in 1993 before a major multi-million dollar restoration project began in 2007.

Open from March to November, the building is transformed in the spring for SpringFest, which sees it host music, art exhibits, activities, and a variety of food and drink.
