I use this facility for the pools, the gym and to watch my baby granddaughter learning water safety. There is a nursery for young children too. There are regular pool and fitness classes and the price for over fifties people is very cheap. Staff are friendly. The gym isn't one of those Lycra venues and is used by a wide... More

The parking at Waterworld is excellent and all the facilities are clean and well maintained. There are pools suitable for all ages from little toddlers to seniors, including the hot pool for those with arthritic conditions.

I am impressed with the range of classes for 'over 50's' and the café where we can all meet and solve the problems of the world over a cup of coffee after class.
