Sometimes special events, such as galas are held at the pool which can affect our normal timetable and result in one or more of the pools closing for some or part of the day. The sauna/steam room also closes in the event of galas. These changes will be shown on the above links when special events occur.
Please note that the Wave Machine is currently not working. We apologise for this inconvenience.
