1st visit here: the staff on the reception were friendly so that was a good start. £4.90 to get in including the fee for a locker. Not too pricey. The locker rooms are compact and easy to find, though there aren't many private showers. When...More

Took 4 children aged 9 to 11 on Sat 11th Feb. It was brilliant. They loved it. The guy who ran the session couldn't have been better. After an hour he had them standing on their boards - we will definitely be back.

This is an artificial wave. 4 teenage children had such fun on the flow rider. It cost £56 for all 4 for an hour. I swam in the lovely pool at the same time. Excellent friendly staff.
