Stunning location for well run event that I cannot wait to return to next year. Beers are served at bars located in the pools, plenty of room outside the back of the venue for food tents.

It was a great experience. We went when it first opened to the public, and were surprised by the splendour that it had been-love that this is preserved.

We visited as part of Heritage Open Days. It was good to see the extent of the renovation of this vast building which is well signed to aid interpretation. Good context given re social history

Beautiful building full of history and character. It's a work in progress to bring it back to it's former glory. But well worth a visit now.

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.

There isn’t a car park, there is limited parking next to the baths, otherwise you park in the streets nearby

As far as I know, you can book a tour around Victoria Baths when an event is taking place. I sing there twice a year and the public seem to be allowed to view the place. It's probably better to look at their website for... More
