Leisure Centres

Swimming pools & sports facilities

Most of Cornwall's main towns are home to at least one leisure centre with a swimming pool and fitness facilities. In addition the majority are relatively modern, having been built within the last ten to twenty years and kept feeling reasonably fresh with upgrades and refurbishments.

Opening times and pricing are in line with what you would expect, i.e. 7 days a week but closing earlier on the weekends. In terms of facilities, all the larger leisure centres have a pool, gym and cafe, with some having outdoor facilities such as the running track at Carn Brea. 

These sports centres make a great family option for rainy days, but this means it can become very busy when the weather turns bad during the holidays.

  • Newquay Leisure World (formerly WaterWorld) is a place for fun, fitness and a splashing time for all the family to enjoy! As well as a standard 6 Lane 25 metre swimming pool there is the "Tropical Fun Pool". Here water-based fun is the order of the day. There are 2 water flumes (big and small) and a whole host of other exciting features such as; the snake floatie, water play hut with cannon and tipper, erupting volcano and snake fountain. In short, there should be something to appeal to all...
