Edinburgh's only Victorian Turkish Baths


The ultimate in relaxation therapy. Our authentic, original Victorian-designed Turkish Baths are the last of their kind in Edinburgh. Portobello Swim Centre offers a totally unique experience and the perfect way to relax after a hard workout, or simply to de-stress from the pressures of modern life.

Work your way through three hot chambers - Tepidarium (warm), Calidarium (hot) and Laconium (hottest) - allowing the warmth to continue its therapeutic effect on the muscles and skin. Repeat the cycle as often as you wish before cooling down in the Frigidarium or relaxing in the Steam Room.

When you book a Turkish Bath session you get access for 1 hour 45 minutes for £8.40. We still need to safely manage the numbers of customers using our pool at any time. So if you would also like to swim during or around the time of your Turkish Bath session you can simply book a 45 minute lane swim session at the time of your choice.  To see more details about how to book in for both a Turkish Bath session and a Swim, details can be found here.

All Turkish Bath sessions require pre-booking, which can be done as a member or PAYG.
