We travel 10 miles to use haven point with grandchildren even though there are closer pools to us. It's the best swimming baths for families, everything is clean and the water is warm. The cafe is not great and could be improved.

First time I have visited this new (ish) pool in South Shields. 3 pools in all and lots of changing facility space. Great swim, clean and fresh surroundings in a nice location near the beach at South Shields.
