Kids love it here - there is a 25m competition pool but there is also a lazy river pool which weaves in and out of the building (the outside area having another lap pool with retractable roof). Plenty of space for both swimming and for...More

I have avoided this place for well over a year but my daughter was adamant so I took the plunge, hoping it had improved. Not a chance, if anything it is worse. The same grumpy receptionist still grunts as you inconvenience her by asking to...More

Great for younger kids. Has lots of exciting water activities such as the currants, jacuzzis, slides, naughts and crosses and the big flumes! Changing rooms could have been cleaner. Would recommend it to all families with children.

Contrary to other reviews I felt that this was really good value for money. Also I think some of the expectations of the bad reviews are unrealistic. This is a really busy place and it was reflected in its general state of affairs. There were...More

Well located in Aylesbury and really good facilities for competitive swimming. It certainly seems to be a fast pool where lots of swimmers get some amazing PB's. The only draw back is the toilets that struggle with the number of visitors at the poolside and...More
