Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The pool was very nice, very clean. The swimmers were very polite. At mid-week, late afternoon/early evening there were 3 or 4 people per lane. Highly recommended.
I swam there with a fabulous Masters swim team in the 50m pool. Bring your own lock or rent one. Showers are clean.
There are not always two lanes dedicated to training swimming. It’s very busy in the evenings, three or four people per lane is not standard. Swimmers do not follow pool etiquette.
This is a very large, clean but somewhat soulless facility. The water is a good temperature for serious swimming, circa 27º-28ºC. Half the pool was laned during our mid-afternoon Sunday visit; the lanes are relatively narrow. One lane was dedicated to anyone wishing to use pool toys (flippers, floats, paddles). The other lanes were not speed-designated. The result was a mixture of slow, medium and fast swimmers satisfactory to no-one. Pool etiquette was poor. Since it is a 50m pool, there is the possibility of overtaking part-way down the lane, something that is difficult in a shorter pool.
