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!
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.
