In the Birmingham area this weekend and not sure what’s on? Why not try something different and join us at one of the most Haunted locations the region has to offer….Smethwick Baths! Never heard of it? Its a step-back-in time swimming baths and leisure centre from the outside and by day, but by night it takes on a whole new feeling!.
This Art Deco Grade II listed building holds such a varied past, not all that pleasant either when you scrape beneath the surface. During the war, the underground tunnels that are under the baths were used as an air raid shelter. A room off the tunnels was used as a morgue. There is a wood store where many investigators ( mainly women) have fled due to a nasty spirit not liking the female visitors!.
Above ground is the once used stage area. This stage saw many famous acts, the most exciting being that of The Beatles. The corridor outside the stage is, according to staff, very haunted. But when you ask the staff where is haunted, they’ll soon rattle off that this includes the saunas, changing rooms, reception area/foyer, the pool observation area, as well as those areas mentioned below ground.
If you fancy being part of a ghost hunting team, using all the latest equipment and exploring this amazing, vast and haunted location, we’re back on 20th September so grab yourself some tickets, a torch and some spare pants as we go in search of the spirits that roam Smethwick Baths.
