Exterior view of Wimbledon Theatre, the only theatre known to have had its own Turkish baths.

The Turkish baths were under two shops which were located at the rear of the theatre (on the extreme left hand corner of the photograph). The entrance to the baths was from a lobby inside the theatre, though there was also access from the lobby to the street, just to the right of the shops.

The baths, after being hidden for several decades underneath floorboards and behind walls, were opened up and sympathetically converted into a privately owned bar, next to the smaller Wimbledon Theatre Studio.
