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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The facility was built in 1923 - 1926 and featured the main, 33m, Art Deco pool.
The 25m pool, one floor below the Art Deco main pool, was added during renovations that were completed in 1986. The 25m pool is reserved for team training; it is open to the public only on Sundays.

Facility Reviews

The architecture is stunning.
No lane lines made lap swimming difficult.
Architecturally interesting, but smelled of cigarette smoke from the café.
The lack of lane lines made lap swimming a contact sport.
Score: 4 on a scale of 10. There's no time when you can swim laps comfortably. Scores 4 because it has water.
Definitely a breast-stroker’s pool, it's difficult to swim in a straight line without bumping into someone. If you keep an eye out it's possible to manage a crawl session.
You're in a pool; make the most of it despite the crowded conditons and disinterested breast strokers. [April, 2014]
Pool 2 is everything Pool 1 is not. Set for laps it has lane lines, trained swimmers, and is properly T marked at the end of lanes. [May, 2014]
