I used to go swimming at Northgate arena when I was a child. Today I took my two young children and found it to be pretty much the same as it was back then. There seems to have been absolutely no refresh or upgrading of the swimming facilities. The male changing rooms do not have cubicles so I could not... 更多
The pool water & air temperatures are far too low, most "regular" children were wearing wet suits. My poor son froze. It's a nice layout for young children and the cafe is good value but the pool is freezing and timetable rubbish for small children during the week.

It looks as if it hasn't had a penny spent on it in years and in fact has hardly changed since it opened in the 70s. As... 更多
Decided to take are little 3yr old swimming. Firstly I was shocked by the price £21 for 2 adults, a 3yr old and a pair of arm bands. But hey it Bern a while since we had been so just thought we were out of touch with the prices. The changing rooms were clean enough but the pool is pretty... 更多
