  • The easy access pool at the shallow end is like entering the water at a beach. My son loves this lagoon pool and it is a great place to give you confidence in the water. There is also a proper pool accessed by swimming under a foot bridge with about a metres clearance. Here you can swim in lanes or free swim. The deep end deep enough to dive although there are no boards. There is also a flume that empties into the lagoon pool which you need to be 1.2 metres tall to ride. The only downside is the changing facility. The tiles are treacherously slippery and the showers are unreliable. They have a gym and a couple of multi-use halls. I've never used the gym but we have hired out a hall for a work day once. It was functional and the staff provided everything we asked for.
  • It is one of the two big swimming pool in Brighton. It has a good sports room and a good dance floor. (There are hoping to build a new swimming pool with flat above it.)
  • Good size swimming pool but often too busy. The teaching pool seems to spill into the main pool at times where they shouldn't meaning your often one lane down. Sometimes they just bundle them into a lane people are swimming in and expect you to go round. Place is showing its age but still enjoyable.
  • Just moved to Hove from London. I used the centre a few times for swimming and I got a positive first impression. The water is fairly warm, which makes it a pleasant swim, but the changing room is cold!! Changing room and showers are clean enough. There was floating dirt at the bottom of the pool, also today the water was a bit murky, which to me it means that the water isn't changed or filtered very often. I don't understand why in England the use of swim cap isn't compulsory, like in many other countries. Also you are not allowed to wear silicone training fins for health and safety, in case you hit someone on their head when they swim up close to your feet, especially when you are the only person swimming in the lane. But it's ok for beginner swimmers to place themselves in the fast lane and swim breaststroke with their heads out of the water. or swim in the middle of the lane so they hit you while you are swimming your lengths.
  • Nice place to go for a swim. Helpful staff, as clean as it can be giving it's always full of people. Recommend it if you're in Hove, check out their website for discounts and special prices.

Where to stay in Brighton

During the height of the tourist season and on most weekends Brighton is a very congested city, where driving is difficult and parking is limited in the central areas most frequented by tourists. Avoid getting stressed out by staying at a self-catering apartment or a private B&B farther away from this part of town. Brighton's famous nightlife may be a bit far from there, but you can still enjoy seafront walks, good restaurants, and excellent shopping. Private seafront lodgings allow you to enjoy your stay quietly in comfort, while remaining within walking distance of Brighton's best beaches.
