How do our virtual tours help?

Our interactive video tours allow you to take a virtual walk around a building, enabling you to plan your visit to one of our leisure facilities in advance.

They will help you become familiar with important aspects of the venue, such as the location of the changing rooms, toilets and quiet areas. The videos also capture the lighting and sound changes throughout the building.

This can help reassure people so they are familiar with their surroundings before they arrive. This is particularly helpful for those with:

  • Autism
  • Dementia
  • Anxiety
  • Physical disabilities.

We also provide easy-to-read guides for you to download, which highlights busy or loud areas that may cause distraction, and offers suggestions on how to avoid them or minimise their effect.

We have video tours available for the Grand Arcade and Wigan, Leigh and Howe Bridge leisure centres.
