The UK’s First City-Based Wellbeing Resort Will Begin Construction In TraffordCity Next Year

TraffordCity is about to get a whopping 28 acres of relaxation!

Plans to build the UK’s first city-based wellbeing resort have been approved by Trafford Council, which will allow Therme Group to build a huge, 28-acre resort opposite the Trafford Centre.

Therme Manchester will combine hundreds of water-based activities with wellbeing treatments, art, nature and technology, creating a unique experience “never before seen in the UK”. In a new update shared on their website, Therme Group has now confirmed that construction will begin in 2021, with the aim of completing by 2023.

Approved just earlier this year, the natural environment will be home to thousands of trees and plants, as well as a whole host of activities – with something for everyone to enjoy. Visitors can expect reasonable prices, as well as a two-acre wellbeing garden, waterslides, a wave pool, indoor and outdoor pools, steam rooms and exotic relaxation areas – all under one tropical-inspired roof. Activities will be available for children, adults and the elderly.

Water lagoons and swim-up bars will be surrounded by beautiful, botanical gardens, while mineral baths, yoga sessions and fitness classes will take place elsewhere in the dynamic centre. The centre hopes to fill a gap for much-needed physical and mental wellbeing in modern-day life, with a tram stop just outside making it accessible for all.

As well as all of the incredible wellbeing resources and activities, guests will be able to enjoy a range of bars, cafes and restaurants for all occasions, focusing on healthy choices for both adults and children.

Richard Land, Chief Development Officer of Therme Group UK, has said: “Therme Group is based on a belief that wellbeing should be accessible for all. The events of 2020 have shone a light on the necessity of this mission, especially for those in cities.

“Therme Manchester will redefine city wellbeing, enhancing mental and physical health through an experience-based in water and nature. Therme Manchester will offer a unique holiday at home, that acts as a catalyst for healthy lifestyles.”

Therme Manchester is predicted to attract two million visitors annually, which will make it the most visited water-based attraction in Europe. Development is expected to begin this year, with an expected opening date in 2023.
