Brilliant fun had today in water. Slides for younger children & slightly older children. Big water slide too which 7yr old loved. Free swim for under 16s 10am-11am Get ticket at reception on way out for free parking too.

The pool is large catering for serious swimmers and learners with a deeper end for some diving. There is also a waterslide which is good for the children. There are plenty of lifeguards around who seem friendly and drinks facilities.

It's a good swimming pool with children's area, adult area, slides and steam room. I found it quite clean, not sure why the locals slate it so much.

I have been coming here for more years than I care to disclose and still find it fascinating. Mainly come here for the excellent swimming pool. If you are in the vicinity it is well worth a visit.
