Better, Ships and Castles Leisure Centre situated in Falmouth, offers quality, affordable facilities to help you meet your health and fitness objectives. Take advantage of our 36-station gym, swimming pool, a variety of fitness classes each week and much, much more. Our popular swimming lesson program caters for children of all abilities so come along and see what we have to offer. 


With lots of exciting features including a wave machine which brings the thrill of the ocean indoors and a river ride which sweeps you along at an exciting speed.

These features are activated about every 20 minutes (during fun sessions only).

The 70 metre flume is the longest in the region and is a sure fire hit with children and adults.

There is a shallow beach area for little ones to play away from the main area; introducing them to the excitement of the pool at their own pace.

There are also geysers and bubbles for the younger ones and places for them to practice jumping in and to gain their confidence.

Take time out during the session to sit in the Jacuzzi pools and watch the rest of the fun.
