Arlington Baths celebrates 150 years of making a splash

The hidden gem located in the West End will offer a programme of events for the community.

Final preparations are under way at the Arlington Baths as one of Glasgow’s hidden gems celebrates its 150th birthday.

To mark the occasion, the Victorian baths in Woodlands, are bringing together a programme of events to reflect the life and history of the building.

Brendan McIlroy, the gala organiser told STV News: “We’ve got three days of community events. A very colourful, diverse programme.

“Everything from our mini gala on Saturday through to a water polo match, illustrated talks, film screenings, so there’s plenty on.”

“A lot of people don’t know about the Arlington Baths so we want to open the doors and let people see what we’re all about and what the baths are all about.

“It is far more than just a dip in the pool, it’s a building steeped in history, with a Turkish suite you would never imagine is hidden in the heart of Glasgow’s Woodlands.

All events are free over the three days.
