Arlington Baths Club

61 Arlington Street
G3 6DT

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 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!

Organisation Information:

Arlington Baths Club is the oldest of the very few Victorian bathing complexes left in the world. Founded in 1870, the Club is owned and run by members, on a not-for-profit basis. The Baths is not only a special and historic building; it is a community of people from all walks of life. We’re home to a diverse community with rich memories. Some members joined as children to swim with their parents; they’re now bringing their own children to the Baths.
