The centre's pool has broken lockers, poorly functioning showers, damaged lockers and dirty changing facilities. The depressing and uncared for feel of this place is why so many people prefer to drive out to the Triangle centre for their swimming. Staff generally appear unhelpful and...More

Love this leisure centre! Best in Brighton! Long may it carry on. Great gym equipment, lovely atmosphere. And it's a maritime heritage site where 22,500 men and women did their naval training in World War II when it was commandeered to become a 'land ship'!

The swimming pool is small so you should check with the staff before going. When not crowded, the place is great. And once swim is finished, just go for a relaxed walk on the seafront. Heavenly!

The pool has filters around the outside that the water "slops" into. This is then pumped back into the pool, so any debris will be caught as it enters the filter. To my knowledge I have never known it be closed for... More
