The Boating Pool is a decent place to take the kids. You can rent a boat for 30 minutes for £5. The food in the cafe is good and there are picnic tables by the pool to sit and watch the boaters.

£5 per boat for 30 minutes - a boat holds 2adults and 3 kids. There is a very reasonable cafe- most meals under £5. Wide selection. Tiny arcade with air hockey and 2p machines!

We walked to this pool from the hotel we were staying at as it sounded entertaining to visit. We walked past it and didn't even realise it was there! The pool had all green algae sitting at the side and the water looked dirty. The...More
