The ideal baby and toddler swimming venue.
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:
• A spacious and toasty warm heated swimming pool suitable for babies from birth, because we all know a comfortable and warm child is much more likely to enjoy the pool. We know that you as parents will be happy too!
• Clean, village style changing rooms with plentiful baby changing tables, vanity units and underfloor heating. No more hanging about in the corridors waiting for your partner or little one to be ready.
• A welcoming family friendly coffee shop with healthy and allergy friendly food options, high chairs and safe play space for your little ones while you relax.
• Oceans of space in our two activity rooms with a variety of activities from story time to messy play, sensory fun or even fitness classes for you and your little one. We’re working with local businesses to offer even more so watch this space.
• The perfect place for your next celebration. Our fantastic party options are coming very soon. We’re already receiving enquiries for once we re-open and expect our parties to be popular so please get in touch if you have a date in mind.
• 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 email@example.com.
