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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

They seem to dislike early morning swimmers. There are usually around 20 people trying to swim in half the pool width, a very small space, and no one can go into the building until 07:30,which severely limits the amount of time one can spend in the water before work.
The website does not show the full pool availability timetable, which is rather strange, but when I emailed an enquiry through the website they did respond very quickly and sent a copy of the timetable.
The pool is now open with lanes available from 0630 to 0900 Monday to Friday and from 0700 to 0900 on Saturday and Sunday. The water was good temperature but others in the pool were saying it was cooler than normal, however, it was good for a serious swim!

There is a 20p charge for a locker, which is retained. You can't leave valuables unattended, so lockers aren't an optional extra. The changing rooms appear to have been updated and were clean thankfully. It's a good value when other pools are £5.00.
