A trip to the Victoria Baths Manchester

The Victoria Baths opened in Manchester in 1906 as a fully functioning place for people to meet, swim and work-out. It was the original leisure centre. It closed after 87 years and now is under-going restoration and a revitalised events calendar to bring it back to its former glory.

It’s a truly stunning building and it didn’t surprise me one bit when I found out they now host weddings, parties and other events there as it’s packed full of period features and history oozes out of every tile.

Promising authentic tastes of Venetian cuisine at affordable prices, we couldn’t wait for our Saturday lunch. And as luck would have it, we woke up to the sun shining and the nicest weather we’d had in the UK all year…this was going to be a good day!
