Woodcock Street Baths: Guided Tour & Swim
Woodcock Street Baths – now known as the Sir Doug Ellis Woodcock Sports Centre – is the oldest operational swimming pool in Birmingham (1902). This guided tour will show how Aston University, who took over this grade 2 listed building in 1980, have refurbished and redeveloped the building into a modern sports centre available for staff and students of the University but also the local community.
The swimming pool which retains most of its original features was constructed in 1902 and other parts of the building were constructed around the original pool in 1921 and again in 2011.
The building tour lasts approximately 30 minutes and after the tours there will be an opportunity for a free swim for those who wish to experience this.
