Looking for something to keep the kids entertained during the Easter break?

Bank holidays

All GO Gateshead leisure centres will be closed on Friday 15 and Monday 18 April, but open as usual on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 April.  

Make a splash

Gateshead's pools have something for everyone - including the Water Wobbler, our new inflatable obstacle course available at Birtley Swimming Centre and Heworth and Blaydon Leisure Centres!

It's open to all ages, as long as you can swim 25m and tread water or float for 30 seconds.
