“really could be better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

I swim at waterworld at least once a week but only because there is nowhere else to go. The changing rooms are always dirty, even first thing in the morning and there are often plasters and other bits floating in the bottom of the pool. For the money that i pay i would at least like it to be clean!

The family all love the activity pool, but the management appear to have turned the temperature down recently.....but not the entry prices!

“Excellent facilities!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

It was a real treat to find a deep 25m pool with various different lanes for different abilities.The fact that i could find the perfect lane for my speed real helped me get a rhythem going and refine my technique as i was not getting stuck behind people.

“Rainy day trip out....not much more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Whilst the kids loved it, the flumes and warm-ish play pool. They don't see the fact that the entire place looks a little tired and like it needs some investment.

However for a rainy mid-morning 'till lunchtime activity that will guarantee to tire the kids out? Well worth the money!!

Agree with other reviewers that place is quite shabby, but we were there in 1/2 term so was packed. Floors and changing rooms were clean enough, plenty of staff to supervise and control any unruly behaviour.

All in all - worth the £20 for a few hours.
