Our facilities (much of which was built in the 1930s) have been adapted for improved accessibility to enable those with additional access needs to enjoy our lido.

  • We have ramped access into the premises from the western side entrance near the café for wheelchairs, scooters, prams and buggies.
  • Our ticket kiosk and café servery area have accessible tills for those in wheelchairs. 
  • We have a accessible toilet in our café and a specific accessible toilet, shower and changing room on poolside. 
  • We have ramped access to the poolside. 
  • Our geothermal pool has a ramp straight into the water.
  • Our main pool has a hoist* to help those with mobility issues into and out of the water.  Please just ask one of our staff if you’d like to use this and they can help.
  • All of our staff are trained in equal opportunities, disability and mental health awareness.   We welcome all of the community to the pool and ensure it is accessible and friendly.  

Further improvements to our disabled changing room have made during our changing room upgrades.

We offer a concession rate for those with specific health care access needs and free swimming for carers if their assistance is required for swimming. 

If you would like help planning your trip and or have more questions about accessibility, please call us on 01736 369224 or email

Entry Requirements

Supervision ratios when visiting with persons under 12 years of age

For your safety, we have strict adult to child supervision ratios in line with national guidance. Please bring enough adults per child when you visit to keep them safe:

AgeSupervision Level
Under 41 adult: 1 child(in the water)
4-7 years1 adult: 2 children(in the water)
8-11 years1 adult: 4 children(water/poolside)

All children under 12 must be accompanied by a responsible person of at least 16 years who is their parent/guardian.

Ratios will be proactively checked by our ticket kiosk staff and lifeguards on entrance and on poolside.  Ratios remain unchanged during fun sessions or events.

Please be aware that in the winter months under 12’s are not permitted in the Geo Pool. 


Photography is allowed poolside but not under-water, in the toilets, showers or changing areas.  Please be mindful of others when taking photos and if you’re a professional photographer, permission must be sought from our ticket kiosk.

Personal possessions

We don’t accept any liability for loss or damage of personal possessions within the pool area. We recommend leaving valuables in a safe place before your visit.

Geothermal pool age limit

Currently under 5s are not permitted in the Geothermal Pool due to safety concerns. We are constantly in review with Health and Safety and hope this is something we can update in the future.

Pre-existing medical conditions

We would advise that you speak to your doctor before swimming if you have any conditions that may affect your swimming ability, or for those wanting to swim in our geothermal pool, your reaction to heat. Our main pool is filled with sea water which is usually just above external sea temperatures. Our geothermal pool is heated to 30-35 degrees.


In line with NHS guidance, we don’t permit pregnant women to bathe in the geothermal pool. Pregnancy does not affect admissions to the main pool.


If you suffer from epilepsy, then you should seek guidance from a doctor before swimming. If you have been seizure free for 1 year and your symptoms are controlled by medication, then we recommend swimming with a friend or someone aware of your condition. It would still be advised to seek advice from a doctor prior to swimming.

Alcohol & drugs

We will refuse entry if you appear under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you are on prescribed medication then you should consult your doctor before swimming.

Please see our frequently asked questions for more information before ringing or contacting our kiosk
