4. Blantyre Leisure Centre

There's a 25 metre swimming pool, as well as a smaller, shallow pool for children and a steam/sauna room. Swimming lessons are also available.

"Blantyre was the warmest we found. Their kids pool has steps into it and a little hill area into it with a hand rail. My kids' love that they have control of how deep they can go and they can feel their feet on the floor ect because it makes them feel safer. The changing rooms are really warm too 😊 plus if you go with someone else you can go to the steam room/sauna round at the adult pool while they watch the kids."
