Location: Porchester Centre, Queensway, w2 5hs
Description: The Porchester was opened in September 1929. Only a handful remain. As the winter nights draw in, there's nothing better than emailing a few old university friends you haven't seen for years and then meeting up to spend a few hours in the spa reviewing life's experiences. Then you come out into the darkness completely refreshed and invigorated and pile into the Spanish restaurant next door.
Actress Jemma Redgrave said The Porchester Baths is a Victorian municipal Turkish Baths in Paddington, London - de-tox to re-tox. It's a fantastic way to relax and chat with girl friends, with a great mix of ages, bodies and cultures wonderful!.
