Bridge College moved into this new building in 2012. They have a fantastic 8m x 4m hydrotherapy pool which is ideal for babies and toddlers.

The water is kept at a temperature of 33-35˚C with a depth of 1.2 metres.

The steps are easy and safe to descend whilst holding your baby and there is some poolside viewing – it’s very warm so we suggest light clothing is worn when watching a class.

Once parked please follow the Aqua Babies signs around to the back of the building.

Buggies can be left in the first waiting area and shoes can be left in the area outside each changing room.

Bridge College has two male and two female changing areas with showers in each and a playpen in the middle changing room.

Aqua Babies is delighted to be working together with Bridge College and Together Trust, supporting them with their hydrotherapy facility.
