Clubbing Together - Clare

April 8th 2020

“...I never enter the building without feeling my mum’s presence.”

We’re asking people what they love about the baths. A few years ago the BBC documentary Pleasure Palace introduced the club to television viewers. And as Clare McCann told us, one star of the programme was close to many members...

...My mother Margery McCann introduced me to the Arlington back in the early 70’s where she was the in-house chiropodist for many years. I’ve been a member twice and most recently, when I went to three day working. Nowadays I call it my “happy place” because not only do I love going after work and on the weekends to swim and shower, but I never enter the building without feeling my mum’s presence! In the spring and summer I love watching the light play on the water through the skylights and in the winter I love coming in from the cold to a warm and welcoming environment. I especially love a big deep bath and to relax in the hottest part of the beautiful Turkish Suite. The staff are always friendly and helpful and for me, I feel a sense of belonging. That’s why I’m sticking with the Arlington!
