  • Do I need to book?
    Nope, no need to book just rock up.
  • When are you open?
    Cold water sessions run on Sunday mornings from 9am to 10:30am from September 17 th . We have run all the way through the winter, however, whether we continue after Christmas or not is down to a number of factors including the weather, turn-out and staff availability.
  • What is the water temperature?
    The water temperature changes in line with the weather. Our first sessions in September is likely to be around 20-23C* and then it will steadily decrease throughout the winter. During cold winters, the water has gone down at low as 3C*. If you’re new to cold water swimming then it’s best to come along every week to allow your body to acclimatise in line with the decreasing temperature.
  • Can I wear a wetsuit, gloves or booties?
    Yep, bring along any gear you may want and feel free to ask our experienced cold water lifeguards for any advice.
  • Are there hot showers?
    No, the showers are not hot, but this is for good reason. When you get in cold water, your circulatory system contracts to keep warm blood close to your vital organs. When you warm up, blood vessels reopen and blood flows closer to the surface. If you warm up too quickly then warm blood rushes into your extremities which are only superficially warm, meaning that when blood returns to your vital organs it is then colder. In short, it’s best to pat yourself dry with a towel, change into dry clothes and have a cup of something warm. Our lifeguards have years of combined experience helping people swim in cold water and there is lots of information on warming up here:
  • Is it safe?
    Absolutely, cold water swimming has hit it big time in the last couple of years and has been proven to provide a whole host of health benefits. If you’re nervous, then feel free to come along just to tip your toes and see how it feels for you. If you are concerned over how a pre-existing health condition might react when in contact with cold water then feel free to discuss this with both your GP and our manager before getting in.
  • How is the water cleaned?
    We had a brand new filtration system fitted prior to the 2023 season which we use in combination with chlorine dosing
  • How much is it?
    £6 per person or £5 for concessions. We do also offer a ticket providing 6 swims for the price of 5.
  • Will you honour passes purchased over the summer season?
    Absolutely, if you have a 12 -4- 10 ticket purchased in May to September then you can still use this during our cold water sessions.
  • Is it only for hardcore cold water swimmers?
    Absolutely not, anyone can come along to join in the thrill of cold water swimming. From those who spend all winter in the water to those just wanting to give it a go, we try to provide something for everyone in a safe, enjoyable and relaxed environment. We usually have a really good group of friendly regulars, so feel free to come on down and meet new people.
  • Is there a minimum age?
    The minimum age for cold water swimming is 16
