Welcome to the Arlington Baths Club 150th Anniversary Walk.

In 1870 a group of prosperous, and mainly young, businessmen met to discuss the idea of building an indoor “Swimming Pond”.

On this walk we will introduce you to some of these men, their families and the houses they inhabited.

Hear more about the Baths, the first privately-owned bathing club in Europe, the architects and builders, and the thriving businesses that drove Glasgow at the time.
