Image of the Month

Described by Time Out as a ‘glow-up’, when you see the original features once again gleaming at Newcastle’s Turkish Baths, you will see why.  To see them restored and re-opened, following in the steps of the restoration work to The City Baths that was completed in 2020, is incredibly exciting and had to be our pick for Image of the Month.

This moment has been reached following a successful community campaign that was begun by Save Newcastle Turkish Baths, which was formed following Newcastle City Council’s decision to close the entire Baths complex in 2012.  Working in partnership with Fusion Lifestyle charity, who took over the lease for the Baths in 2015, it has been a mammoth project to bring the 1928 building back to life.  We will be looking back on these events in an upcoming blog by Cait Read, one of Save Newcastle Turkish Baths’ founders.
