The revamped Marshall Street Baths in Soho, London, UK, have reopened following extensive renovation.

The £25m ($39.8) redevelopment included repair of neo-Georgian baths to maintain its original 1930s features along with other restoration works.

The restoration will feature a new leisure centre which will include new gyms, a sauna and health suite and dance and exercise studios.

The work has been carried out by Westminster City Council and its development partner Marshall Street Regeneration.

The scheme received support from the local community and key groups including the Friends of Marshall Street, according to 24dash.com.

The project received funds from a wider regeneration programme, which includes building an affordable housing scheme.
