Footwear is essential so either bring an old pair of trainers that you don't mind getting wet or wetsuit boots if you have them.

Hot showers are available (and recommended if you've been in the water!) so bring a towel and shower gel/shampoo, etc. You'll also need a 20p piece for the lockers which is not returned.
