Visited the pool twice with my wife and two children aged 7 and 10 when on holiday in Torquay and all in all must say the children enjoyed themselves. The first time was better in my opinion as it was not too busy but the second time it was really busy as it was a very rainy day and everyone... More

The Centre is easy to reach in Torquay offering water park thrills like a wave machine and water slide (check opening times as slide only runs certain days during term time). Warm water and friendly atmosphere. Facilities were generally clean on our visit. Also attraction was very busy so visit was limited to an hour. Pool is not suitable for... More

We are local residents who decided to take the grandchildren to the pool due to rainy weather. Having not been for many years we had forgotten what it was like. We expected it to be busy and boy was it! The pool was packed but nevertheless still fun and the kids enjoyed it, warm water, waves and flume. Changing rooms... More

The pool was good and clean and there was lifeguards paying attention. Kids really enjoyed it and the waves were fun but the changing room situation was weird. Male and females separate which is hard for families In the men's it's all open change. No cubicles In the women's there's 8 cubicles with like a shower curtain for a door... More

We arrived around 10.30am. For five of us it cost sub £20 for as long as we wanted. A lovely 29oc swimming pool which you... More

We attended the BSO Last Night of the Proms concert at the Riviera Centre with a group of friends. We sat upstairs and had a grandstand view of the whole orchestra. It was an excellent concert, the seats were comfortable and the staff of the centre all did their best to make everyone feel welcome. I would recommend this venue... More
