The UK’s first city-based wellbeing resort, Therme Manchester, is still on track for its 2023 opening date despite the UK’s cultural sector being thrown into chaos by the COVID-19 crisis. Due to make its debut in Trafford City, Therme promises to be a state-of-the-art spa and entertainment centre costing £250m and spanning around 28 acres. This brand new venture will feature hundreds of water-based activities including a wave pool, water slides, indoor and outdoor pools, steam rooms, exotic palm trees and relaxation areas making it the perfect staycation spot. What’s more, the scale of the project will offer a range of upcoming job roles, providing a boost to the local economy at a time when it’s needed most. Other features include a dedicated adults area with swim-up bars, therapeutic mineral pools, saunas, botanical gardens and a range of water-based fitness classes which will be conducted on-site, including yoga and pilates.
Alongside a wealth of wellbeing treatments, Therme will also feature vibrant collage of nature and art installations and a selection of cutting edge technology to create a venue the likes of which has yet to be seen in the city. Location-wise, Therme Manchester will open opposite the intu Trafford Centre, making access from Manchester City Centre and the surrounding areas a synch thanks to its proximity to the newly opened Metrolink Station near Barton Square.
