Emerton Leisure Centre has a terrific indoor pool area with a 10-metre spiral slide. The slide doesn’t have a height restriction but staff say it is only for children aged five and over.
There are no strict opening hours for the slide, but it tends to open around once an hour so long as staff are available to oversee it.
In the meantime the leisure pool, with its spray jets and spa seats is great fun.
