A new wellbeing resort complete with a water park and 35 slides is coming to the North West.

The resort will be built by wellbeing company Therme and is expected to cost around £250m.

It will be built at Barton Square, at the Trafford Centre and feature 25 pools, 35 water slides and hold daily exercise classes.

The new centre will also have 1,500 palm trees, rooftop beehives and on-site restaurants.

There will be something for all the family, with an adults-only area complete with swim up bars and mineral pools.

Therme bosses have said they expect 1.5m people to visit the site once it opens.

It will also include a bio-diverse garden with petal shaped terrace and pools suitable for all seasons.

Richard Land, chief development officer of Therme Group UK, said: "Therme Manchester will redefine city wellbeing, enhancing mental and physical health through an experience based in water and nature.

“It will offer a unique holiday at home, that acts as a catalyst for healthy lifestyles.”

The group have said they hope the new resort will be a “landmark development” for the city and become an “iconic symbol of the north-west.”
