Please see my review for aquterra leisure, this is the only branch i really use. It has a leisure pool with early morning, lunchtime and evening 25m lane swimming and a good gym upstairs. Lots of classes from what I can gather too. In addition they have a sauna and plunge pool. I generally just swim here.
I have used this pool a lot over the years as a great place for younger kids to gain pool confidence and have fun. Its another beach style pool with a tiled island area - perfect for little ones getting to grips with jumping in the water. Much of this pool is really shallow. It has a reasonable wave machine - with a shelf you can sit on and get battered by the waves. Great fun when the kids were under 8 - we came here after school every 3 weeks over a couple of years (we use to alternate with Britannia in Hoxton and Waterfront in Woolwich) - but we have outgrown it . All the kids swim competitively now and the fun here is too tame for them (even with the youngest at 9).
It has a really small swim around the island with no jets - just a waterfall that flows over your head as you swim by. A good shower jet for standing under that is powerful and always catches new visitors out as they desperately try to stop the jet removing their swimsuit. There is one slide which is great for first slide experiences....It snakes directly over the pool and is only half tube so if you go fast enough you get to splash the water over the top onto the pool below (and unsuspecting swimmers). Guess I spent too much time here. Main jacuzzi pool was always out of action and the small version was pretty poor.
They do offer lane swimming if you want to train after public sessions - they stretch a few ropes across - so many better places to train, not sure why anyone would use this unless they lived next door..
We got to know most of the staff really well - slide was always open and on quiet nights we would get the waves to order. If you are looking to build water confidence in your toddlers or provide fun for under eights then this is great - otherwise travel there are better places about.
Showers hit and miss, changing facilities basic and there is a gym. Never used it so cannot comment.
When I first signed up for the gym membership here, I was expecting to work out among only the senior members of the local community - not that that would be a bad thing. But then I was the more surprised that the clientele here is actually very diverse: from the teens, who are posing in front of the mirrors in the locker rooms to show off their muscles, the bus drivers working out during their breaks, the house wives gathering in the morning to do engage in chit-chat on the cross trainers, and the grandma from next door who's the most enthusiastic participant in the tummy session...
When you join with a yearly membership - which is really affordable - you get a package of personal training sessions, a gym towel, a T-shirt and a water bottle...all this is nothing fancy, but then again it kind of entices you to continue coming.
Also, the trainers here are really great, I have to say. What's best about them is that they engage in ever-so-brief conversations with you; they ask you how you're coming along, or when you haven't been there for a while, they notice you coming back and congratulate you on that. This, I feel is great and it makes me feel as being part of some kind of community.
Keep up doing the good work!

This is a pretty good swimmong pool, although it really is for families and children, not for serious up-and-down swimmers. There isn't much space for exercise-swimming, but plenty for playing. It is really more like a landscaped garden, but a swimming pool one. It has a glass roof so light pours in, white walls and floors, which give it a sunny, holiday feel, warm water (30 degrees), and special features such as little waterfalls and bubbly bits. There is a little bubbly bit for children, and a jacuzzi for adults overlooking the pool, so parents can relax while keeping an eye on their children. On top of all this, it has a water slide! Perfect.
