Hi. This is my first post, so sorry if it's in the wrong place. I'd like to take our 18mo son swimming at weekends, but struggling to find a pool that's warm enough and/or has a teaching/small pool. We tried Seven islands and the poor lad nearly froze to death! Does anyone know anywhere suitable please, I don't want to join a health club just for this, and most of them look down their nose at children anyway! Thanks.
Not sure what the temperature is of the Circle Spa pool but they have/had 'water babies' there so I think it should be good. I believe kids hours are 3-5 however babies may be something separate, give them a call 020 7378 7112
The council pool at Camberwell Green is really nice and has a separate kiddie pool. It was done up a couple of years ago and has family cubicles in the changing room too. If it's not too far from your side of SE1 then I'd recommend it.
I've always found the pool at seven islands really warm, perhaps you should have a chat with them to see if they were having any specific problems at that time and give it another go (I'm presuming it is local to you). Otherwise I agree about camberwell, if it's not too much of a trek.
