Swimming isn't only a great form of general exercise, it can also be soothing, relaxing and best of all great fun! It's an excellent way to tone up and trim down.

Just swimming a few lengths can involve most of the major muscle groups, giving your body a great workout. The other big advantage of swimming is that water supports your weight and takes the stress off your joints, so you can put your body through a good work out without your knees, hips or spine paying the price.

Whether you are looking for wet and wild splash sessions, a venue for a kids pool party, a relaxing swim or an invigorating work out – we have the pools for you!

We have a Zoggs swimwear pop up shop on the groundfloor, you will find a variety of swimwear, googles and swim aids for sale.
