  • My daughter (11) and me went here for 2-3 hours. There was a queue out the door to get in but this moved pretty quickly. Once we got in we noted that the changing area was nice and clean (helped by th...  more »
  • The leisure pool itself is usually very good and my grandchildren enjoy it. However, the floor tiles around the pool are always very slippery and especially so on those areas which have a gentle slope...  more »

  • Went there in half term with my 7 year old and 18 month old and it was expectedly busy, which was no problem at all. On a good note the slides there are pretty good. My issues are that the pool was so cold that my youngest' lips were turning blue after30 minutes and he was trembling after 45 minutes which is when we decided to leave. I thought I'll warm the little one up in the shower which is based literally poolside, how are you meant to have a shower to wash the chlorine off yourselves standing in sight of everyone by the pool? Not only that but the water pressure from the shower would have hurt my youngest had I put him directly in the water which is very poor design in my opinion considering that the leisure centre is new.
  • What a joke swimmingpool is open from 8am so wen there 9am and they are open but closed at the same time as they having swimming classes till 11am. What a joke and unprofessional services, if its says you should respect prople and not telling them you cannot go to swimming pool with your child. Worst experience ever. Not gonna use it again rather go somewhere else far away.
  • Great place to go swimming really enjoy my visits here.
  • Excellent 50m lane, relatively low chlorine pool ! The only downside is its very often booked out by various schools and clubs leaving the public just two lanes.. even when the clubs arnt using all the lanes themselves. But all in all, i'd go to this swimming pool over any other I've been to so far :)
  • It's the best place for swimming but Gym and other stuff sucks. Not good.
