We went to Victoria Baths yesterday as part of the national Heritage Weekend event where all sorts of places are opened to the public. The original plan was to go up Peel Tower, but getting a 3 year old to walk up Holcombe Hill in a typhoon would have proved tricky.
Anyway... back to Victoria Baths. If you like buildings, architecture and even a bit of social history (1st class men had a separate and far more opulent entrance to 2nd class men, assorted dirty poor people and grubby women) you should take the opportunity to visit. The place was dubbed “Manchester’s Water Palace” when it opened in 1906 and you can see why.
Did anyone else go to a Heritage Weekend event?
