Festive Winter Fair


11am – 4pm, Sunday 12th November

Browse the best makers from Manchester and beyond in the glorious setting of Victoria Baths, a perfect stop for festive shopping! With fifty specially-selected stalls selling a fantastic variety of high-quality, handmade crafts including artworks, prints, jewellery, ceramics, candles and edibles.

Our volunteer-led Tea Room will be serving sandwiches, cakes, snacks and hot & cold drinks – plus mulled wine and mince pies!

As you explore the beautiful pools and Turkish Baths, stop off in our Gift Shop for a great variety of items celebrating Victoria Baths including tea-towels, mugs, cards, postcards, coasters, keyrings, pens and small-batch VB Gin!

Discover more with our highly-recommended Guided Tours, bringing to life the heritage of Victoria Baths. Tours cost £8 per person and last just over an hour…

Discover Victoria Baths is an entertaining guided tour of the main building, including the pool halls and Turkish Baths.

Off Limits Tour* visits many areas not normally open to the public, including the pool undercrofts and boiler house. This tour involves stairs and uneven floors and isn’t suitable for visitors with limited mobility.

Supporting Victoria Baths Trust

Victoria Baths Trust is a registered charity and relies on the support of the public to continue its efforts to fully repair and preserve the building. Buying an entry ticket, a cup of tea and a cake in our Tea Room or a gift from our Gift Shop all help to preserve the building and keep the Baths open for future generations to explore and enjoy.

Is Victoria Baths accessible?

There is an access ramp at the main entrance and an accessible toilet and baby change facilities. The ground floor is completely accessible, including the Tea Room and Gift Shop. Currently, we do not have first-floor lift access. If you need help during your visit, please speak to the staff or a volunteer, who all wear name badges. Blue Badge holders can park directly in front of the building.

What is available in the Tea Room?

Our volunteer-led Tea Room offers a selection of light snacks and sweet treats. As we are only open for events, we cannot always gurantee what we will have on offer and we may sometimes sell out of popular items such as cakes and sandwiches.

For the Festive Winter Fair we will have a number of fresh sandwiches, locally made savoury pastries including sausage rolls, vegan pastries and pork pies. Plus a variety of cakes and scones, as well as minced pies and mulled wine. Please be aware that some items may sell out across the day.
