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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 water is usually warm, the changing rooms have been upgraded and are clean; and it's not too busy in mornings (9 – 10 AM) although, if a school is in, swimmers get corralled into just 3 lanes. And a 33m pool is better than 25m for me.
Staff were very friendly and welcoming and the pool is a spacious 33 meters, with diving boards a different levels, most of which I'd get dizzy even looking at. The advertising poster didn't lie, the place IS welcoming and friendly.
Terrible from start to finish! The receptionist couldn't say please or thank you. The changing rooms were filthy and smelly. The poolside guards were unmotivated and unhelpful, certainly not child (or adult) friendly. The pool water was dirty with sticking plasters and other unidentifiable objects on the bottom. I strongly advise travelling to Banbridge or Lisburn, instead, especially with children.

I've always been welcomed warmly and I've always found the pool and changing rooms to be clean. In fact, the changing area is cleaned regularly and thoroughly. Early morning lanes are great for those who want to swim lengths.
