I almost didn't want to write this review. The reason being that if I let the secret out, I might not get space on the classes I love. But that's too selfish, so here I am. I started classes at the Rapids in the first...More

I have two boys 3 & 5 and they like all the splash features and slide. It's great you can go down the slide with them while they are still young. Pool could do with being warmer for little ones. We used fast track so...More

Is it not bad enough the changing rooms are dirty, and the standards have really gone down hill since Places for People took over? Now it's hit and miss whether as a member I can book a class or activity on the website, absolute nightmare,...More

It is in need of some investment, rusty ladders, tired interior, but for a weekend splash with 1-8 year olds everyone was happy. There was one slide and a long queue, but the mixture of pools and the lazy river kept us busy. Don’t go...More
