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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 is new (it opened in 2005) and has good, clean water. It's often quiet, unless there's a club session. Lane swimming is available in the morning and at other times during the day. The changing facilities and showers are not great, but it's not a serious problem.
The changing rooms aren’t cleaned as often as they should be and there should be a ‘no shoe policy’ in the changing rooms as there is always a muddy river flowing through them. It gets horrendously busy at the weekends.
The pool is rather warm for training - nearer 30ºC? During the early morning lane swim, they set-up three double-width lanes in the six lane pool. It would be so much more effective if there were six lanes! Swimming in the fast lane means you are constantly moving in and out, overtaking other swimmers. If set up with six lanes, it would enable folks to swim in the correct speed for them. It's a frustrating swim in the only decent pool in the area!
