Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Reviews

Rating: 7 on a scale of 10. Built over the bay, unusual length, good for lap swimming.
Beautiful pool: glass walls, lots of light, great showers, evenings are often crowded.
I'd give it a 9. There are three or four lanes for laps in early morning it's sometimes crowded, other days it's just two in a lane.
A rating of 7 strikes me as low for this pool. It's a great location and a big clean pool. I found the unusual length forced me to step out of the mold of doing 50s all the time in favor of more 100s. I'd give it a 9.
Best pool in Wellington. Great location, clean, wide lanes, proper lane ropes, and proper lane control. The staff are great and on the ball. 33m is a good length as it adds good variety to your training. Also it's pretty much an adults-only pool so there is only ever lane swimming. There is no recreation space so precious lanes are never given over to inflatables for kids to play on! If you want to splash with your kids then go outside onto Freyberg beach or go around to Kilbirnie.
