“Incredibly relaxing - highly recommended!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We booked a visit to the Floatarium as a couple. They have two 'float tanks' - one is like an egg and the other rectangular. When you lie inside, the water fully supports your body weight and you can choose if you wish to shut the lid shut and have the light on or off. We both went for door shut and lights off (after we got used to it) to benefit from the whole experience.

The experience is amazing - due to not having any sight, sound or smell and the water supporting your body weight, your mind just seems to shut down and your brain switches off. Afterwards you feel so relaxed and carefree. We will both be going back for more. One hour cost £35 each, which we felt was long enough for a first visit.

The reason we have graded it very good as opposed to excellent is due to some areas of the facilities requiring a little TLC - discoloured paintwork etc. I would advise you to take flip flops. Overall, it was great and the staff were very friendly - a visit would be a great treat for yourself or a voucher would make an excellent present for someone else.
