Get Directions

 

The High Street in Winchester has lots of cute shops worth a visit. One of our faves has to be The Old Fashioned Sweetie Shop, well worth a visit for some post swim refreshment! If you want to run off some more energy, then nearby Oram’s Arbour has a great park, or grab a coffee & just let the kids crawl/toddle round the Cathedral grounds!

Why not give us a try? 

Book up for a course of lessons and if after your first class you decide it’s not for you we offer a full refund to all new customers.

It’s a chance for you to meet the team and enjoy a Splash, Kick and Swim the Baby Paddler way.
