The Arlington Baths Club is the oldest member-run swimming pool in Europe. Our ‘A’ listed building houses a skylit swimming pool and a magnificent Turkish Bath. This Victorian bathing complex was constructed in several phases and the Arlington has been an early adopter of new technologies: a Victorian concrete dome and a 1930s eco-friendly sand filter! Since opening in 1870 we’ve been a home-from-home for thousands of Glasgow men, women and children who have come to the Baths to swim, exercise and relax. Hear a wealth of stories about our history and our past members – people who made Glasgow!
The tour also includes the opportunity to see the 51 Glasgow Doors artwork by Glasgow artist and Arlington Baths Club member Marion Gardyne, depicting 51 of Glasgow’s outstanding, quirky and eye-catching doors. Learn about each one: dates, architects and locations, and place an order to buy your own high quality print.
