Attended for a swimming competition. The pool is lovely and the facilities are excellent. The access is limited due to ongoing building work, there is a nearby car park. Be careful - whilst trying to locate this pool you do not drive in a bus...More

I come here a few times a month to practice swimming. Students only have to pay 2.10£ which I find amazing. They have a small pool (1.5-1.8m) and a large one (unsure of depth). Water is clean, changing rooms are plenty, showers are ok. Overall...More

The gym in the aquatic centre is adequate. The pool side however leaves much to be desired. The changing rooms are always filthy. The pool itself during 'swim for all' or adults swim' is incredibly shallow and isn't of much use if you want a...More

Dirty changing areas, tons of broken lockers, dust clumps and used plasters floating in the water! I left feeling dirty and disgusting, with the fear that I had caught some sort of disgusting disease. I will never return again and recommend people stay away!

This place is so dirty, half of the lockers are broken and the toilets smell. I have been told by the staff that work there (receptionists!) that the managers are horrible and bully the staff. After questioning the floor cleaner on one visit because the...More

Sorry for late reply but I do not have a clue about normal opening times. I would ring the pool direct to get the most up to date info
