The council planners of Trafford have agreed to build the UK’s first city-based wellbeing resort in Manchester. The estimated £250m Therme Manchester scheme might attract up to two million visitors per year and will combine hundreds of water-based activities.
This 28-acre resort is in progress by the Backer Therme Group and expected to open in 2023. It will be built opposite into Trafford Centre next to Barton Square, with a Metrolink station directly outside.
The site includes EventCity which’s already functioning. As this particular venue washes off with the ongoing project, it would be relocated and redeveloped at TraffordCity.
The significant attraction of the project is a two-acre wellbeing garden designed in the shape of a Rose. Other amenities will include a wave pool, waterslides, indoor and outdoor pools, and steam rooms keeping in view large gatherings.
