The Better Flex membership goes one step further with a flat monthly fee of either £10 or £5 (concessionary/Junior). You'll save up to 30% on non-member prices or 50% on non-member prices (if you're a concessionary member and choose off-peak times). You'll also get a free activity booking (gym/swim or fitness class)once a month and the beauty is Better Flex members can use any Better leisure centre*.

Is it better to buy a Better Flex membership or a daily pass?
