Aquatic Bowling Center ABC Hesdin
Ranked #1 of 1 things to do in Marconne
Attraction details
Reviewed April 4, 2013

My husband and I took the kids to the ABC Hesdin twice over the Easter holidays. On the first visit we went to the bowling alley. There are 6 lanes in total and all were in use while we were there (two of them for a children's party which I must say looked superbly organised by the staff). The bowling alley was clean and well staffed but the only slight sticking point was that they only had one ramp to share between six lanes, not great when there was a kid's party on. However we managed to share and it was a good chance for our children to practise their French when having to ask for their turn of the ramp! The cost for a family ticket (we went at peak time I think) was around 25 euros.

The following day we went to the pool. For a family of four it was 14.40 euros. The facilities were immaculate (much better than our previous experiences of French swimming pools!) and the visit really was value for money. An important point to note however is that swimming shorts are not permitted. They do sell skimpies (ie speedo style shorts) at reception but at around 25 euros a pair we nipped to Zeeman's (across from M Bricolage, next to Chaussprix the cheap shoe shop) where they had similar trunks at less than 4 euros a pop.

We really enjoyed our trip to the ABC and would recommend it to all.

Brand new leisure complex - Aquatic Bowling Center, in inimitable French style. Pool complex with tenpin bowling - but not together.

Inside you get a proper pool for swimming up and down, a splashing about area with water squirting things and a bench with water bubbles for ladies to sit on, a water chute, an espace detente for lazing on the sunbeds, and a tiny tots pool - not bad for 5 EU. The water was a bit chilly for splashing around I thought.

There’s also a small Gym and a sauna / steam room / jacuzzi area, which I think costs extra.

Outside the pool area wasn’t open and in December it didn’t look very inviting. But I am confident that I will change my mind when the spring comes and the poolside cafe and ice cream shop opens.

The tenpin bowling area with cafe bar looked small and friendly, but we didn’t go this time.

Outside they have built one access road off the main road from Hesdin, and one that comes past Lidl and the vet’s. Other roads lead to planned hotels and restaurants which as I write exist only in the architect’s imagination. Follow these roads at your peril - they end in muddy holes.

All in all a definite plus for Hesdin, even though the other plans are unfinished.
