Went here during our trip to the Marine parade. Checked times for the fun swim online and decided to go in the morning. There was a small que. We had to purchase tickets and wait in the que outside to be let in. It was abit chilly so that wasn't much fun. There were lots of changing rooms and lockers... More

Watched my young granddaughter swim here as part of the swimming club. Excellent facilities , lovely area for families to be close and watch the youngsters, warm and safe. Downside was no refreshment / food facilities maybe this is just a temporary thing as I did see signs. The lifeguards were very vigilant and the area looked safe. The swimming... More

The pool itself is nice but too many ropes and restrictions, far too noisy from a horrendous sound system, crowded out and the changing facilities are abysmal. Still adore the wave machine though!

For around £12 for a family of 4 to swim this was a good value trip which was enhanced by the inflatables in the pool, which along with the wave machine were thoroughly enjoyed by the children! The changing rooms were OK. The only thing missing was a hand dryer or paper towels in the toilets.

A large & well kept indoor swimming facility. They offer inflatable sessions right throughout the holiday periods which are great fun for the whole family & good value too. They do swimming lessons & all sorts of other classes. There is a café available serving snacks, sandwiches, drinks etc. as well as hot food. There's also an indoor soft play... More

We visited here today with our children aged 11 & 4. It's our first time as we were visiting family in Gorleston. While we knew that the fun swim was from 12.30 what we didn't expect was to have to wait outside in the freezing cold after we bought our tickets. There wasn't just us there was a fair few... More

the leisure and fitness centre newly refurbished last year 2015 situated on the sea front has a coffe shop/restaurant pool with wave machine can get very bust holiday season especially if its a rainy day so be prepared for long ques also when busy its a timed swimming ticket great for adults and children also do family tickets

A nice pool with fun sessions with inflatables and wave machine. My daughter really enjoyed it. The sessions were timed and with the bad weather seemed to sell out. Afterwards we had a session in the soft play. The tables weren't cleaned and no signs of any staff. The reception staff didn't present a welcoming image for the centre. The... More

Visited the area as part of a holiday, we googled somewhere to take my son swimming. I've never been into a swimming pool with so many rules and so much disorganisation. There was 5 different things going off at once in ONE swimming pool. My son wasn't allowed on the slide as its only used on "Saturdays". I've never known... More
