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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This site works best when its users take an active role in the maintenance of the data.
Present the bar coded admission ticket to the reader beside the turnstile to access the facility. Retain the ticket because you will need it again to operate the exit turnstile. Gender-specific locker rooms: lockers require a €1 coin returnable deposit. Access to the pool is through the shower rooms: customary practice is for users to shower and wash with soap before entering the pool.
At the time of my visits (early morning, both on weekdays and weekends), the 50 metre pool was part laned. The three lanes provided were not speed differentiated. However, this did not prove to be too much of an obstacle because (a) the pool was not particularly heavily used (on my visits, there appeared never to be more than about five swimmers in any one of the lanes) and (b) those swimmers who elsewhere might have been expected to be using a slow lane were in the unlaned area, which was divided by a transverse rope delineating the shallow end. Good lane discipline was observed.
The lockers use a €1 coin. It is advisable to test the lock by inserting the coin to determine if it works properly.
The Olympic pool is 1.2 meters deep with lots of natural light. Swim caps are optional. There are three lap lanes. A sign at the foot of the lane nearest the windows indicates it is reserved for classes, otherwise it is available to all lap swimmers. The remaining two lap lanes are not designated for speed, but passing a slower swimmer is acceptable. The combined three-lane area tends to be chaotic.
