Hi Keith
           I checked the internet, It seems it only functions now as a "Tourist Attraction".Why cant it open as a swimming pool?Edinburgh manages to run 5 Victorian pools Dave Wilkie Olympic Champion swimmer trained in one.
Out or Nowt? Ready for Out.

Have I missed something on this? Didnít they receive millions of pounds some years back to return the baths to its former glory?

Take a look at their website, it seems the restoration is a much bigger job than at first thought, costing almost twice the original estimates and is still ongoing.
