Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We've taken the decision to close all of our leisure centres, swimming pools, community centres, Turkish Baths, our two museums, the Mercer art gallery and tourist information centres.

This is with effect from end of business tonight (Friday 20 March) and these buildings will remain closed until further notice. The decision is in line with updated government guidance and reflects the need for us to do what we can to encourage greater social isolation in light of the spread of the coronavirus. If you are affected by these closures, there is no need for you to get in touch. If you are a member of our venues, having swimming or diving lessons or other regular activities, your membership will be suspended and you will not be charged for April or May. If you have existing bookings, you'll be contacted over the coming days.

Open to teenagers who are at least 14 years old.

This is a relaxed, mixed-ability session and a great way to learn new skills, meet new people and keep fit at the same time. Whether you want to achieve a simple head-first dive from the side of the pool or to master a full set of competition dives, our instructor will help you realise your own ambitions.

Wednesday evenings 8pm to 9pm.

You can attend these sessions on a pay-as-you-go basis, with bookings made at the Hydro reception.

For more information, or to book, please contact the Hydro at, by calling 01423 556768 or you can contact us online.
