Escape Leisure Club - *Closed*

Our Escape Leisure Club offers a friendly and welcoming environment for all. Whether you’re looking for something active and fun, or prefer to relax, you can be sure that we’ve got something for all ages and all energy levels. Our indoor heated swimming pool is always a big hit – plus there’s a fantastic gym to help keep you in shape. For something more laid back, why not pamper yourself in our Health and Beauty Salon or relax in our hot rooms. Feel free to do as much or as little as you like.
