Good sized local leisure centre with swimming pool, sports hall and fitness center. There is a medium sized soft play which my kids enjoy. Booking in advance is recommended for most activities. Membership is a little pricey when compared to other local sports centers which have similar offerings.

Great facilities, and very clean and serviceable. But crowded and short of parking spaces when they have an event such as football or basketball. Why do football players need to change in the pool changing rooms? No changing spaces …

All the people that work here seem lovely, helpful and professional. Could do with better management of swimmers during lane swim sessions as you often find people pausing and blocking the end of lanes having a chat. Big downside is …

I come here for the swimming pool at least 1-2 times a week. The Steam Room and Sauna are such a highlight just makes my exercise that bit more fun. I am missing the Jacuzzi though.

This is a great, clean little softplay frame with plenty of variety to amuse the kids. There’s no seating within the softplay room unless you sit on top on the shoe storage, so the tables & chairs are outside the room & you need to keep …

The gym has a very decent layout with a lot of equipment and all personal trainers are friendly and there is enough of parking! A good place to spend a few hours:)

FREEZING cold family pool my 1 year old was shivering so we had to get out, the changing rooms were so dirty would not recommend!
The family changing rooms are also so small could barely fit 2 adults and a baby in.

The gym staff are friendly and helpful.
The gym itself is ok but could expand the weight lifting area with more equipment and reduce the number of treadmills. There can be a little wait in the weightlifting area but an overall good experience over the past year.

I’ve never had confidence in myself until I came here! But that is 100% down to the staff! They’re all amazing (especially the gym staff as that is where I am most!) Support inside and outside the gym whenever you need it! Also they’ve always had all the equipment needed for a good workout and loads of classes to choose from!

Worst gym I’ve ever encountered. Wouldn’t wish it on anyone. Terrible staff, rude, unhelpful, slow. Swimming pool is boring, dirty, frequently too busy and staff will stare at you while you’re swimming. Cancelling has been very difficult and cost me a lot of money. DO NOT BUY A MEMBERSHIP.

The teaching pool is absolutely disgusting, 75-80 cm water and you can barely see the bottom of it it’s that mucky and cloudy! And it’s green, which is what you get when you mix blue and yellow. Overpowering stench of faeces in the changing rooms, wafting out into the pool. Absolutely rank, but alas there are few accessible alternatives.

They use a third party company called DFC for membership payments and they are the one who charge late payment fee of £15 even if it is one day late..
