Turkish Baths

A must do experience

Looking to dip your toe in the water? The Turkish Baths offer (freezing) cold, tepid, warm and steaming hot solutions that will wash your worries away. Or fancy delving into the history of these healing waters? Then do not pass go and head straight to the Royal Pump Room Museum.

Opened in 1897 as the Royal Baths, it was the ‘most-advanced centre for hydrotherapy in the world’. People flocked from all over the world, including Tsar Nicholas II and Charles Dickens, to lap up the mineral waters on offer.

Turkish Baths

Modern 'Victorian' experience

Today, the Turkish Baths offer you the Victorian experience with a modern (£1m) facelift. The original Moorish design, with its distinctive Middle-Eastern arches, can be enjoyed as you pick your hot room, enter the steam room, quickly remove yourself from the plunge pool or kick back in the rest area. It’s a place to shut out the world and enjoy some much-needed ‘me’ time.

Entry price starts from £15, and there are varying times when the Baths are open for ladies only, or when both men and women can enjoy the benefits.
