Fancy spending the summer with dinosaurs, mermaids, superheroes and the odd pirate or three?

This summer beautiful Grade II Listed Bramley Baths will be transformed into waters of adventure for young and old alike.

Race against your fellow Pirates of the Bramley-bean to recover hidden treasure in underwater treasure hunts, or check out our adventure-themed sessions which feature heroic superhero-themed swims or battle inflatable dinosaurs in our own jurassic pool.

Superhero swims run weeks commencing July 29, Aug 12 and August 26, with Dinosaur swims running weeks commencing August 5, and August 19.

Bramley Baths chair of trustees John Battle said:

“Adventure has a new name – it’s called Bramley Baths!
“It promises to be a summer of adventure here at Bramley Baths. We dare you to climb across our giant inflatable obstacle course – or join us for our ever-popular family fun swims!”

Check out the Merminnies sessions for 4-7 year olds and parents. A fun 30-minute creative movement and swimming session to music where children alongside their parents/ carers can have fun building their water confidence and learn floating and aqua-batic moves.

Junior Mermaids is for 8-12 year olds. It’s a creative swimming and water-dance class using synchronised swimming techniques to combine exercise, creativity and fun. These are weekly, one-hour sessions.

The Baths are also putting on their popular week-long crash courses, aimed at boosting kids’ confidence in water.
