All you need to know – Brighton Hilton Metropole

King’s Road, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 2FU

We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at Brighton Hilton Metropole – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!

Location: Brighton Hilton Metropole

 

Parking:

  • Churchill Square NCP Car Park is a 3 minute walk from the venue.

Essential Information:

  • The entrance to the LivingWell Heath Club at the Brighton Hilton Metropole is usually via the hotel’s main reception and down to the basement in the lift from the main foyer. In 2022 the hotel is undergoing major refurbishment so the main entrance is via the Queensbury Mews entrance on the left hand side of the hotel as you look at it from the front. There will be clear signage in place and hotel staff will man this entrance to direct you to the pool. 
  • There is a designated area close to the pool within the hotel for pushchair storage during lessons. We do however recommend that you only bring a pushchair if absolutely necessary. Pushchairs will be left at the venue at the customers’ own risk. During the 2022 renovations there will be some internal stairs to negotiate as the lifts available do not go all the way to the pool level.
  • A padlock is required to secure the lockers at this venue; please bring one with you.
  • We recommend that you bring a small changing mat that can be rolled up and placed in your bag so that you always have a dry place to change your baby.
  • A well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with a disposable swim nappy or one of our environmentally friendly Eco Swm NappyWrap & Liners underneath if your child is in Floaties, Splashers or Kickers and in other programmes if they are not potty/toilet trained. Why not buy one of our great value swimming kits which contain everything you need for your swim lesson.
  • We recommend that babies under 12 months old wear a BabyWrap or other baby wetsuit; these can be purchased from our shop.
  • You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page.

Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks has the use of a designated area of the pool during our lessons; the rest of the pool is used by LivingWell Heath Club members.

  • There are ample changing rooms with fresh water showers, lockers and baby changing units.
  • A padlock is required to secure the lockers at this venue; please bring one with you.
