At Guildford Spectrum there is a great choice of activities, both sporting and playing, with something for every member of the family – you can enjoy the complete leisure experience there!
Tenpin Bowling is a great game, suitable for all abilities. Spectrum Bowl has 32 lanes of guaranteed fun and excitement if you fancy doing something different with all the family. There is also an Olympic sized ice skating rink, which is open all year round. For smaller skaters, hire some fun penguin or snowman skating aids when you arrive, as there are a limited numbers available.
If it is swimming you are after, Guildford Spectrum has four pools, including a leisure pool, a 25m competition pool, teaching pool and diving pool. The Leisure Pool is an exciting area with fun features including flumes, a tyre ride, bubble beds, sprays and a wave machine. You can also race your friends on the Surf, the 3 lane slide. Specky’s Swim School is a great place to learn how to swim! Other facilities include Specky’s Pirate Ship which is a fun soft play area, health and fitness facilities, a sports arena and an athletics stadium.
There is also an outdoor football pitch, indoor rock climbing facilities with Rockbox, and the biggest Scalextric track in the South! Children have a great selection of birthday party packages to choose from. There is a choice of catering on site and children’s holiday activities are organised. Guildford Spectrum also hosts professional Ice Hockey with the Guildford Flames. Family tickets and special public sessions are available.
I visited Guildford Spectrum with my friend and 3 children between us. We booked for swimming, bowling and ice skating, it was so much fun and great value for money ! When we booked our tickets we were advised to have the swimming as the last activity, which was great advice as ice skating wouldn't have been so enjoyable. Everyone was shattered at the end of the day looking to do the same again over the Summer holidays.
