Please check the timetable of your preferred pool.

A range of Zoggs swimwear and swimming equipment is available to buy before you swim at each of our pools including goggles and swim nappies.

Lockers in the changing rooms require a returnable one pound coin or trolley token.

Armbands are available for non-swimmers on the poolside.

Child admission

For your safety and comfort, one responsible adult (aged 16 years and over) may supervise two children under the age of eight years, when the following conditions apply:

  • where one adult supervises two children under the age of eight years, all children under four years must wear armbands, or appropriate flotation devices at all times
  • all pools will identify a designated shallow area of water where supervision will apply. Armbands or flotation devices will not be allowed outside these areas during sessions
  • when one adult supervises one child only aged under four years (for instance, on a one-to-one basis), constant supervision and contact with the child are required at all times. Flotation devices are optional and pool use is not restricted. However, when flotation devices are worn both adult and child must remain within the designated area
  • family tickets apply to general swim sessions only
