If you want to swim with your dog, you’ll need a Human swim ticket, but if you’d prefer to stand poolside and throw a ball (provided), then a swim ticket for the dog and a spectator ticket for you is fine. For safety reasons, they don’t allow young humans under 16 into the main pool, so they only need a spectator ticket.

Once through the gate, you can let your dog off their lead to run, jump, slide, swim and splash to your heart’s content within the secure site. If they’re not confident diving straight into the 40m (heated) pool, with it's wide, shallow steps for easy access, they might prefer the gently sloping splash pool with a slide & chaseable water spouts. There's also lots of grass to run around on.

Dogs aren't allowed into the changing rooms/toilets, but they have easily-identifiable stewards who will keep your dog safe whilst you get changed.

They have a great range of stalls, so there’ll be plenty of opportunity to spoil your dog (including refreshments & dog ice cream) and once again, they’ll be offering a drying service so that your dog can be comfy in your car on the way home. (You can park for free in their car park)

You must choose a human ticket (either swim or spectator) before the Dog ticket option is visible on the ticket site.
