Pull on your swimsuits and dive right in...

Turquoise pools, waterslides, white tipped surf – we just love being surrounded by water. Our outdoor pool is open from 27 May till the end of August – for sunny days. And our indoor pool is heated – great for those rainy days. Take a swim, whizz down our multi-lane waterslide, or grab some time on our Aqua Gliders! We even have some paddling areas for toddlers.

Water facilities

This is what it's all about - a whole range of amazing water-based facilities for every age and ability, and all completely free. It's all about having fun and gaining that extra bit of confidence in the water.

Our facilities include:

  • Heated indoor pool*▲
  • Heated outdoor pool*
  • Indoor multi-lane slide*

Heated indoor pool

Our indoor heated pool is free for everyone to use. It's open every day, come rain or shine. Its has a multi-lane slide to make a big splash on, And to top it off we also run a great variety of water activities for everyone from tots to adults. Fun for all is guaranteed. All we ask is that kids under eight and non-swimmers under 14 bring along an adult. Don’t forget your arm bands and goggles — and let’s make a splash!

Heated outdoor pool

We know you’re brave cookies but we know you’d much prefer to dip your toes into a lovely heated swimming pool. So we’ve made sure that our outdoor pool is at just the right temperature for you. Why not enjoy a few lengths in the British summer weather (open from May until the end of August)? If we’re lucky to have hot weather earlier on in the season, we’ll try our best to open earlier too. Bring along the whole family, because all kids under eight and non-swimmers under 14 need to be with an adult. Grab your towels and sun-cream and sink yourself into our warm waters.

Indoor multi-lane slide

Our indoor pool has a multi-lane water slide for the thrill-seekers to make those big splashes. All kids under eight years and non-swimmers under 14 do need an adult with them. And we ask that one adult only looks after up to two children at a time; just so no one feels out of their depth – so bring along all the family and let’s make a splash together!

Water based activities

As well as being a great place to go for a swim, our pools are also places where we've dreamed up all sorts of fun ways of getting wet. We've got various machines and contraptions to help you glide on or power your way under the water; kayaks and paddlers where you'll hopefully keep afloat; and lessons for the little ones to give them more confidence in the water.
