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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Aqua aerobics and swimming lessons available (contact the ticket office). The pool has a purification system suitable for sensitive skin. There are separate changing rooms for the disabled and a lift or stairs to enter the pool; they cut into a sidelane. Another lane is reserved for aqua-jogging, leaving just four lanes for swimming, one or two of which will be reserved for local swimming clubs in the evening.

Facility Reviews

The pool has been recently renovated (2012 - 2013), so it is now in very good condition, including the (pneumatic) gym equipment. Air quality problems seem to have been solved and, importantly for swimmers, the pool now has actual walls in the ends of the pool, making turns is possible. The starting blocks have been removed from the shallower of the two ends and new blocks added to the slightly-deeper end. Diving is still not allowed.

After the renovation, the pool has been very quiet so, while it is a bit out of the way, there will likely be more space to actually swim.
