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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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, which was built in the 1930s, was part of an £11 million redevelopment project completed in 2010 that also included the construction of 37 "luxury loft apartments"; the money wasn't all spent on the leisure centre and pool, but a lot of it must have been.

Facility Reviews

A jewel of a pool in the heart of London, a short walk from Carnaby St. Permanent slow, medium and fast lanes allow relatively stress-free overtaking. A long, narrow, open-plan changing area/showers (for the men, at least) has generous lockers.The hairdryer is pathetic and the loos have little privacy; otherwise it works well.
Specially overcrowded weekdays at mid-day and from 5 to 6:30 PM; out of those time frames, the pool is surprisingly (for London) empty.
Nice pool with three wide lanes. The water and ambient temperatures are on the cold side and and showers, too, or at least a few of them. They often reserve lanes for groups from 8 PM so you're left with one, two, or none.
[March, 2013]
The pool is a gem, but the cramped changing room facilities, which were part of the recent renovation, seemed to have been designed by someone who has never set foot in a gym or a swimming pool.
[October, 2013]
Delighted to see this beautiful marble-lined pool (in which I regularly swam some 40 years ago) back as a public facility, now as then heavily used by the large numbers of workers in the heart of London's West End. The pool is of a now largely superseded length (100 Imperial feet): 33 lengths approximates to 1,000 metres. Good lane discipline observed. The men's locker room is reasonably well appointed but a little cramped when the pool is crowded (as it can be at lunchtimes). Lockers require a £1 coin (refundable).
[February, 2014]
This is a delightful pool: Elegant marble; clean; a perfect temperature; and with three very wide lanes that make it easy to pass. The women's changing room is just fine, with private showers, good lighting, and suit dryers. I love this pool in heart of Piccadilly. If taking the Tube, use Exit 1 at Piccadilly Circus.
[September, 2017]
The locker system referred to in the February, 2014 review, above, has now been changed. Be sure to take a padlock with you.
