Such a great swimming pool for children. The main pool has a wedge design so that even the youngest children can walk up to where they feel comfortable. There is a pirate ship in the pool with a slide. There is a baby section with fountains and a mini slide and there's also a huge family slide for all ages.... More

Joined Fitness Unlimited with a view getting fit prior to serious chest surgery. Since using the pool at Hillsborough I have twice developed a flu like infection. Although I have no proof of a connection, it seems a bit beyond coincidence. Far from improving my fitness, I seem to have taken several steps back. There are several issues here. There... More

I've visited here for years but this year it's really started to go downhill. I take my daughter to swimming lessons which are great but the changing rooms are awful. They're regularly dirty and there's not enough family rooms to accommodate. The floors are often quite slippy & dangerous too. The website is always full of inaccuracies, I'd suggest you... More

Went to the Leisure Centre for a swim today with the kids. Had to wait 45 minutes to get in which was fine seen as its a rainy bank holiday. Changing facilities are poor - all mixed changing, cubicles small and didn't feel clean. Shower area was very limited, with only 8 working showers to share amongst everyone. Car park... More

Quite large actually. Shallow pool decent sized with a very large normal pool with a giant slide. Waves are on at certain times. But they warn you. Great laugh with a cafe to eat and drink and gym to work out too.

Love that the children can go swimming here and we can specate from the poolside in the cafe area. If the kids need us they can just come out of the pool and they are in the cafe. Pool is good, the kids love the slides, especially the black one. Only down side is the wave machine is not often... More

Went here at half term for the first time and thought it was lovely. Two slides and wave pool with small kids area and pirate ship with main swim pool adjacent. The only downside is there aren't many cubicles and so was very busy at changing times but would definitely go again.
