Our one year old has recently started to go swimming with us. We decided that the time capsule would be a good family place to go. Wrong!! £17 for 2 adults and a 1 year old was not worth it at all. I found the...More

Adult £7 @ peak & £5.25 off- peak kids over 5yrs £5.25/ £4.05 Kids 3-4yrs £3 / £1.75 I believe that there's various family deals available Our grand daughter has an access membership so we don't pay for her to use pool

Is it??? Has there been a lot of deaths there???
thanks for your honest account, Lily. I've always fancied the Time Capsule with the kids but, on your review, I don't think I'll make the journey now. I thought it was meant to have been refurbished a year ago too.
