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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

I liked the pool a lot - it has two saunas (infrared and regular); it’s very clean; and it has pull buoys, kickboards and fins for public use.
A modern, well appointed, and well maintained local facility with gender segregated changing facilities. The lockers are electronically controlled and require users to select a 4-digit PIN: watch the video on the facility's website to see how the system works.

At many pools, users are enjoined to shower before entering the water: an injunction that is usually met with cursory compliance, if at all. Things are different at Vesterbro: users comply to the letter! The practice here (on the men's side, at least) is for users, once divested of their street clothes, to proceed completely naked from the locker room to the shower area, carrying their swimming things with them. Wall diagrams in the shower area specify the parts of one's anatomy that are required to be washed with soap, before putting on one's trunks and going forward to the pool itself (liquid soap dispensers are situated beside every shower head).

On my visit (early on a Sunday morning), two lanes in the centre of the pool were roped for lap swimming: neither had more than about four users at any one time. The remainder of the pool - on either side of the roped lap lanes - was available for general use. Kickboards, etc. were freely available. The water quality was outstanding (as it should be, given that users were all well scrubbed before going in). Although the facility was generally very clean and appeared to be well managed, the walls at each of the pool ends were decidedly grubby at the waterline (length-wise, the water level was flush with the pool side). It is to be hoped that someone is soon charged with setting about the grime with a scrubbing brush and washing soda!
