Took three kids on a sunny day, they had a great time in the pool and playing table tennis. Plenty of space to pitch up for the day with a picnic. Cafe also available for hot drinks and food.

Ilkley pool is great for kids and adults alike. The pool is set into four areas that keeps young and older safe. Take the swing ball with you, as there are great areas for ball games etc. Cafe reasonable prices.
