    Manchester's Victoria Baths is opening its doors to the public

    "Victoria Baths in Manchester is opening up its doors to showcase the building's starring role in hugely popular television dramas.
    Peaky Blinders, Cold Feet, Coronation Street, Age Before Beauty, World on Fire, Mrs Biggs, Prime Suspect and Cracker have all used the historic swimming baths.
    Visitors will now have access to some areas of the building that were previously off-bounds to the public.
    Original props and photographs from the shows will also help to bring key scenes to life."

    A BBC online news item dated March 14, 2020 that includes a one minute video showing where some scenes were shot at the location.

    OOPS!

    If clicking on the above link brings up the article but the video does NOT start playing soon afterwards you can try doing a search of the BBC online site using "Victoria Baths" (https://www.bbc.co.uk/search?q=Victoria+Baths) and then click on the item that matches the header at the top of this post.

    Unfortunately this news item video is also not on their YouTube BBC channel and there seems to be no way to create a direct link.

      We used to have our annual school swimming gala in these beautiful baths during the 60s.

        Victoria Baths was a location for Now Voyager (1985), featuring Michael Hordern and Bee Gee Barry Gibb.
