Welcome To The Western Baths Club

Welcome to the Western Baths Club

Please refer to the floor plan to assist with an understanding of the building lay out.  Floor Plan

Situated on Cranworth Street in Glasgow’s West End, The Western Baths is a historic building which continues to provide services for health and wellbeing for its members and visitors.

The facility houses a full range of wet and dry facilities such as a swimming pool, gym, sports hall and exercise room.  It also has areas which would be regarded as for relaxation such as saunas, steam rooms and tepidarium.

There is a bar and bistro area and we also offer services such as sports massage, beauty therapy, hairdressing and a creche.

The building itself compromises three/four levels and is situated between Cresswell Street and Vinicombe Street.  It sits directly behind the Hillhead Library, and next door to the Hillhead Book Club Bar and Restaurant.  The Baths are close to many bus routes running alongside Great Western Road and Byres Road and is only 0.2 miles (approximately a 5-minute walk) from Hillhead Underground Station.

From a navigation perspective the postcode G12 8BZ should be used.

Entrance to the club is via two steps through the main reception doors.

Unfortunately, the building, due to its historic nature, is not wheelchair or buggy user friendly.  From the main reception the same level houses the sauna suite.  The sportshall, situated at the  Cresswell Street end of the building, has direct ramp access, however, this is contained to the sportshall only.

From reception users must descend stairs to get to all the other areas, including the bar and bistro.

Staff are on hand to assist all members and visitors through out the club.  Please do not be afraid to ask for assistance.  The reception in the main entrance is manned almost all the time.

We currently (End 2017/2018) have a group evaluating how to make our building more accessible to all.  If you have any suggestions please do not hesitate to contact the club via this website, in person, or by phone.
