I've visited many times and there is always something different happening there. From vintage fetes to tours to weddings, it's all a wonderful nostalgic trip back in time. Well worth a visit and nice to support a local project like this.

Amazing place and great history of Victorian baths. I enjoyed the tour round the building and just listening to the history got me very excited. The place is being restored but needs a lot of works and funding. It worth a visit

Although the building is very much a work in progress as it returns to its former glory it is still stunning. The stained glass is beautiful. We went on the guided tour and the volunteer guide was very knowledgeable. Lovely wee shop too.

Found down an ordinary residential street, this is a beautifully restored example of Victorian baths, guided by enthusiastic volunteers. Definitely worth a visit.
