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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Bring your own towel.
There is a free form pool next to the outdoor 50m pool, it's about 30m long and, if quiet, is good for drills. It's warmer than the 50m pool.
Various hotpots are alongside the outdoor pool at varying temperatures to relax in after a training session.
Credit cards are accepted for admission.

Facility Reviews

The memory of swimming in the dark, in illuminated, steaming water, below icy air sustains me at many a cold, dark moment.
I visited this pool in August, 2012. As both a serious Masters swimmer and a geologist, I loved this pool - it is heaven! Quite warm but big wide lanes! Slower folks got out of my way. Nice people. I want to retire like them! The lap lanes were way better than most places I travel. The air was cool and I was on vacation, so I swam laps and sampled the hotpots, steam baths, etc. - Lots of fun! If you'll be there for a while, consider a 10 visit pass. Must shower and follow instructions.

This is a beautiful facility. It's very clean and well run, with free soap and locks. There are plenty of lap lanes and swimmers observe appropriate swimming etiquette. The water was a bit too warm for me but I imagine on particularly cold days it feels perfect.

Great facilities. The indoor pool is modern and up-to-date. The outdoor, 50-meter pool has no wave control, so it feels like open water swimming on a windy day. The locals do not practice basic circle swim etiquette, i.e., they don't group themselves according to speed, don't allow faster swimmers to pass, etc. Be aware of this as you swim and you can avoid unintentional frustration.
