A good leisure centre, lots of facilities and activities, the pool is excellent and kids love the wave machine. A small cafe rounds off any visit

This was a great day out. The changing rooms had big spacious ones for families and they were clean. The pool was a comfortable temperature. The waves and flume were good fun and the swimming pool was good for just swimming. Floats were available. The...More

The children's pool has graduated depth plus two small and one strong underground bubbler, as well as a wave machine at specific times and a flume for those over 1m 20cm. There are also plenty of large floats (my kids called them boats) that they...More

Our first ever visit to this swimming pool. We visited as we was told this swimming pool has a wave machine, and as my children had never experienced a swimming pool with waves it was a must we visited. They was not disappointed, they loved...More
