About the Campaign to re-open Newcastle Turkish Baths

We are a small voluntary group of former Turkish Baths users investigating the possibility of re-opening of Turkish Baths for accessible and affordable swimming and health uses with extensive community involvement. We are currently working with Fusion Leisure to restore and re-open Newcastle City Pool and Turkish Baths.


Newcastle Turkish Baths were, and could be again, an attractive leisure and health facility for all ages and communities from across Newcastle, the North East due to its affordability, wide and central transport links, location in the centre of Newcastle between two Universities, and the Civic Centre, its historic and community features, and unique and historic Turkish Baths. If re-opened, re-invigorated and promoted effectively the Turkish Baths could offer benefits to a wide range of communities not served by existing pools, and widen its appeal further still for national and international visitors, and broaden its offer further to include additional beauty, sports and health packages and add-ons.
