The hydrotherapy pool at Orpington Hospital is the perfect place to swim with your baby as its heated to a very cosy 34 degrees, its like stepping into a bath! The facilities are great for our needs with 2 spacious changes rooms available, with showers, plus a waiting area where you can leave your coats and shoes.
Located just off the Sevenoaks Rd/A223, take the roundabout onto Cardinham Road and follow the road up until you see the hospital at the top.
The get to the pool enter the hospital and turn right following the signs for Hydrotherapy.
Photography is strictly prohibited.
Parking: The car park is located in front of the entrance to the hospital and parking is priced at £1.50 per hour but there are also plenty of cheaper and free parking options on Tregony Road and Porthallow Close.
Changing rooms: There is plenty of space in both male and female changing rooms with space for car seats. There is also space for spectators but no outdoor shoes are to be worn inside the pool area.
Please ensure that before you get in the pool you shower when you leave the pool you take all dirty nappies with you.
The pool is very warm and runs at 34 degrees so really only a neoprene nappy is needed but some smaller babies might benefit from a wetsuit or warmsuit.
