A-Z of Secret Edinburgh: Victorian Baths

One of Edinburgh's Victorian swimming pools

When it comes to Victorian baths and swimming pools, Edinburgh’s certainly not at the shallow end!

Warrender in the Marchmont area and Glenogle at Canonmills have both recently been  refurbished and have their original–style poolside changing cubicles and glass roofs.

The city’s only remaining Victorian-built Turkish baths

You can also head down to Portobello, where the pool is situated right on the Esplanade and features the city’s only remaining Victorian-built Turkish baths.

Warrender Swim Centre, 55 Thirlestane Road, EH9 1AP; Glenogle Swim Centre, Glenogle Road, EH3 5JB; Portobello Swim Centre, 57 The Promenade, EH15 2BS. For more information, click here.
