The ultimate baby and toddler swimming centre.

We’re here to make sure you enjoy your swim!

The Fish Tank is our purpose-built family friendly swimming and activity centre. With four children of our own, a wealth of experience in customer service and the Early Years industry and plenty of market research too, we’ve designed the whole development to meet the needs of young families.

Did we mention there’s free customer parking, a bicycle shelter and space to store your pushchairs too? However you come to our venue we’ve got you covered.

And our helpful and friendly staff are always on hand to offer support and assistance where needed.

We can’t wait to share The Fish Tank experience with you. We look forward to seeing you all! If you have any questions or suggestions please get in touch via Facebook message or email us at
