Don’t let the weather stop your little ones from running around and blowing off steam! Take them to Sunderland Aquatic Centre for a huge selection of all-weather facilities, including a 50-metre Olympic pool, diving pool, gym and the kids’ favourite - a three-tier soft play area. 

The play area is designed for kids under 8 and features designated spaces especially for babies and tots. With lots of climbing, sliding and diving involved, your cheeky monkeys will be busy for a while, so you’re welcome to enjoy a cuppa at the on-site café while they play. 

Here’s something else to get the kids excited - a pool full of huge inflatables! Every weekend, children (8+) and adults alike are invited to explore Atlantis Adventure - the region’s biggest mega inflatable.
