Victoria Baths

Victoria Baths

The Victoria Baths, near Longsight in Manchester, were designed as a prestigious baths complex by Manchester's first City Architect, Henry Price, and opened by Manchester Corporation in 1906. In their design and construction no expense was spared. The facade has multi-coloured brickwork and teracotta decoration, the main interior public spaces are clad in glazed tiles from floor to ceiling and most of the many windows have decorative stained glass.

For 86 years the Victoria Baths provided both essential and leisure facilities. Private baths and a laundry were housed there along with three swimming pools and the Turkish Baths. The main swimming pool was floored over in the winter months to hold dances. In 1952 the Victoria Baths installed the first public Aeratone (jacuzzi) in the country.

The Victoria Baths was closed in 1993. The building is now in very poor repair and yet remarkably intact with most of the stained glass and original tiling remaining. the Victoria Baths is listed grade II* on the List of Buildings of Architectural and Historic Interest.

Budapest, Gellert baths, central hall

Budapest, Gellert baths, central hall

The Gellert baths and hotel were opened in 1918. The hotel was the headquarters of the Reds, the Romanian Army and finally Admiral Horty. During the 1930s and 1940s balls at Gellert were the toast of the town. Debutantes danced on a glass floor laid over the pool.

The baths have been nicely restored. When in Budapest, it is almost a must to go there; touristy but not crowded. At the center is a luxurious Roman-styled pool. The thermal baths hold beautiful majolica tiles and mosaics, and are half Art Nouveau, half orientalist. You feel like a sultan, relaxing in the pools, with the enormous vaults above you. In Summer you can also visit the outdoor pools (one with cold, one with warm water). The indoor thermal baths have separate men only and women only sections. The only difficulty is the labyrinth of passages to get from one section to another.
