Famously, the only thing that Manchester is missing is a beach—but that could soon be about to change.

Therme Manchester, a huge new £250m wellbeing resort set to open in Trafford Park, has revealed that an all-season beach is part of its latest blueprints.

The beach is the latest addition to the already sizeable plans, which include a ‘next generation’ waterpark, thermal bathing and wellbeing spa.

There will also be immersive digital art, an on-site urban farm and botanical gardens, all designed to create an integrated experience that benefits both physical and mental health.

Therme promises to utilise cutting-edge technology to ensure the resort is sustainable. Plans also include the world’s first ‘living waterslides’ which use a 3D printed superstructure to house thousands of plants and an education centre where school and community groups can learn about sustainability, food and nature.

Stelian Iacob, Senior Vice President of Therme Group and CEO of Therme Group UK, said: “Our commitment to bring Therme Manchester to the UK is as strong as ever. Expert independent studies have shown the hugely positive economic and social impact that Therme Manchester will have, helping to create jobs, economic prosperity and bringing health and wellbeing to the daily lives of millions of guests.”

Therme is aiming to submit its revised plans to Trafford Council in the summer. Construction of the development is scheduled to begin in 2023, with a build time of around two years.
