Helping you to make your special time last even longer...that’s the Puddle Ducks’ difference

You’re likely to be swimming with friends and make new ones along the way, so why not live life swimmingly away from the pool by meeting up before or after class.  Here are some local places we think you and your children may like:

Closest play-park

There is a play-park on site near to the car park.

Closest cafe

The Cafe H coffee shop is available on site (please note only food bought at the café can be consumed).

Closest soft play

There is an indoor soft play area next to the cafe (this is an open plan area).  There is also Magicland soft play in Cirencester.
