The Friends of Carlisle Victorian & Turkish Baths formed in May 2021 to protect and develop Carlisle’s Historic Baths and ensure they continue to support the Health and Wellbeing of local residents and visitors.
We hold regular tours and organised volunteering days and other activities to raise awareness about our campaign. To be the first to hear about our activities please sign up to receive our newsletter.

How Can You Support Our Campaign?
As volunteers we rely on donations and fundraising to pay for our publicity, stationery and professional fees. Every pound you give takes us one step closer to achieving our Vision.
Please support us by making a donation today.
The people who will decide the future of Carlisle’s Historic Baths are the local politicians. The Friends are committed to working with the City and County Councils, the local MPs and the new Unitary Authority, but the people politicians listen to most are their constituents.
Please write to your MP and Councillors today and ask them to support the Vision for the Baths.
Over 1,500 have already signed our petition in support of our Vision, but we need as much support as possible if we are to convince the Council to adopt our Vision.
Please sign and share our petition today.
Last but not least US THE THE TURKISH BATHS!
Not only are they unique, stunningly beautiful and good for your health and wellbeing, the people who already use them are friendly, welcoming and have the best ‘craic’ in town*.
It doesn’t matter who you are, what you look like, where you live or where you are from, everyone is welcome at Carlisle Turkish Baths.
