The little kingfishers play centre is the first place we have found where we can actually relax and let our granddaughter run about, being only 2 and autistic it is extremely difficult to find anywhere safe. Ample parking and adjoined to …

We visited for the 1st time today with our 4yr old Twins. We were very impressed. Changing areas were clean, tidy and warm. Pool was great, good temperature and nice depths so that the kids could still touch the bottom whilst building their …

I was enjoying the experience until I noticed an old plaster stuck to the floor on the way back from the lockers to the pool. It had clearly been there a while. And while I was in the pool I noticed a plaster stuck to the fake rocks by the …

I take swim lessons here. The pool depth is the same for each lane. This helpful for getting lengths in while I build confidence. There are deeper lanes for more seasoned swimmers. The instructors are great too.

I’m a regular gym goer here and it’s a bit lacklustre. It is missing some essential gym equipment in my opinion, plus there is only one cable machine which is hard to spend time on, as even in the quietest hours of the day as some people …

Part of the reason why visiting family in Sudbury always feels like a holiday. The family sessions are good fun if you’ve got kids, weekend mornings are busy but towards lunchtime a bit less so. The wave machine and slides are a big hit with my little one.

Kingfisher is by far the best place for going swimming, I absolutely loved it 30 years ago & now my children all love it too!!! It’s incredible how nostalgic I felt going there again. We went on a Sunday afternoon and there are plenty of …

Visited today for the first time. Went to the float and fun session. First impressions was how clean the changing room was. I really liked the shoes off policy to enter the changing area and think it really makes a huge difference to its …

Lots of 0600 swims done here this year. The pool is a good temperature. Must swimmers pool etiquette is good but there is the odd one who should clearly be in a different lane but the lifeguards never enforce common sense.

Excellent Leisure Centre
Back to normal now post the height of the Pandemic.
Needs continuing investment from the local authority for repairs etc.
Great staff, a nice place to go.

Lovely pool especially for young children – the parking outside is free on Sundays and the old railway line next door is a great family walk
A real asset to Sudbury

“Customer service”? No, haven’t heard of it. Waited for 30 minutes in vain for someone to appear at admin’s desk to ask about aqua aerobics.

Swimming pool is great. Good wave machine and the kids like the slide. Slightly chilly but fine if you keep moving. Nice clean changing rooms. The cafe is an absolute shambles though. Wrong drinks orders delivered and chips that never …

Absolutely freezing in Soft Play area today (Sunday 11th)! Heating not adequate or simply not working. Breastfeeding Mum sitting in cold – not good enough. Spoilt an otherwise happy experience with four year old grandson. Needs sorting Kingfisher!

This place hasn’t changed since I was a child, it was clean enough but the booked times of one hour are just a bit silly at this point and just seem like more of a money making venture to get you in and out. They didn’t have any arm bands …

Much better since the changing rooms have been refurbished.

April 2023, £6 for a child to swim is a bit expensive. And the WiFi is shocking, constantly dropping out. No good if you need to work whilst your child is swimming.

Very busy on a Sunday at 2pm today. Not entirely disabled friendly or for those who have high sensory needs but we thought we would try it out. Maybe not for us again. There was many things to play with in the family fun time though.

Free parking, loads of room to play and swim on family fun days. Wave machine and slide only seem to be available once an hour. Life guards are on top of safety so great for kids.

Usually very clean and have the odd enthusiastic member of staff, but not many. You gave to pay now for only an hour, yes 1 single hour which is overpriced for a family of 5ije ourselves. The wave machine wasn’t on today so kids had to contend with the manky part chewed floats.

Great children’s swimming lessons and teachers.

Systems in place re Covid are really good. Pool is pleasant, clean and a good temperature for swimming. Only complaint is people are obviously wearing outdoor shoes while using the toilets making the floor dirty, though changing cubicles and walkways are usually clean.

It’s a great shame as the pool itself is good size, perfect for a swim if you’re a tall person who likes swimming alongside the deep part. Sadly, looking at the bottom of the pool, as I do my lengths, I can see dozens of plasters dancing …

New renovations have enhanced an already excellent leisure centre. There is an extensive programme of activities for all ages and tastes. The staff are very friendly and helpful, especially after the national lockdown. Very simple to book online for one off visits or memberships. The cafe is good for drinks and light lunches.

As per all abbeycroft pools in the area, if you are a swimmer who trains and hence uses fins, paddles, snorkel etc, just don’t ever go there or bother trying. The pool, ironically does not allow any equipment to be used. If, on the other …

I’m a local person and enjoy this pool about 3 times a week. It’s a decent sized pool and has a nice atmosphere. It’s waves machine is calm for the little ones and on wet and wild it gets busy but it’s fine. 5 stars!

I went to a ‘wet ‘n wild’ swimming session. It was incredibly over crowded, the whistle of the Life guards was blown near constantly at times, and generally it wasn’t well organised or worth the money I spent on it.

We like kingfishers. Nice little play area (coffee is a bit yuck!) It’s in good repair and fairly clean. Does get absolutely rammed tho and their is little access to the baby area due to so many tables in the way.

Brilliant place to take kids swimming. Very shallow for a while before it gets deeper so perfect height for all ages. Just a shame they didnt keep the slides on long enough? When it states flumes from 12pm till 4pm on website on a saturday but opened at 1pm for half hour.

The place is so run down. The mens toilets were falling apart, were not clean, no soap in the dispenser, the swimming pool floor as you walk in had mould all over. The changing rooms are so small. The showers were disgusting rubber coming from the walls the water smelled funny. Would not go back
