Soapy Delight

Opened in 1910 the Turkish Baths in Carlisle might be the only surviving and still in use example of what earlier was quite the thing in Victorian Britain. The baths are original, the Byzantine style intact and here at least a gentleman or pretender can be lashed foamy by a hairy mute whilst one sips Arak from a copper cup. The baths now can be hired for parties where presumably one can party like a well shaved Harkonnen. The baths are in James Street, are perfectly real and can be found close to where a Bulgar is shaking his fist at the otherwise ordinary building.
