Butlin's Bognor Regis Swimming Pool and Interactive Water Features


Devin Consulting was thrilled to be appointed to this prestigious project for Bourne Leisure’s Butlin’s at Bognor Regis.  The design was based around a traditional British seaside theme which is carried through the seven different rides, flumes and water features.  Devin worked alongside Lavington’s and PWP Architects during the course of this project; their role as aquatic consultants included the design and specification of the pool water treatment systems, the pool water features & slides hydraulics, and site monitoring of installation and commissioning.

The new pool is 6,300m² and is able to welcome up to 950 guests at any one time! Bourne Leisure has invested £40M into the creation of this new attraction which includes seven rides, and features the only Helter Skelter water slide in the world - users slide down it before making a splash into the plunge pool below. 

The Seaside Garden Rapids takes users on a journey with a choice of slides heading back to the main pool. The Stick of Rock Slide allows four bathers to race each other down the shutes to the rock archway below and into the main pool – time it right and users could find themselves plunged into the waves which operate frequently.  Quieter zones include a lido area for swimming with beach huts and sun loungers for relaxing.  Little ones are well catered for in the Seaside Playground area dedicated to children up to age five. 


A great feature is that this facility is accessible to all with level access at all entry and exit points and availability of a wet wheelchair, ramped beach access into the water, and a portable hoist to access the Lido.

The new facility provides an environment of family fun activities with excellent air and water quality.
