Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and 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 admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, 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 the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five 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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, 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 the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

When I went recently, it was not pleasant. The water was cloudy and felt oily. It tasted horrible. The lanes are too narrow for passing. There is no attempt to separate slower from faster swimmers - and there were slow swimmersin every lane. The changing rooms were dirty and there was rust inside the changing cubicles. On the plus side the receptionist was nice and there was adequate car parking.

The pool is wide and during the morning lanes-only sessions is divided into two halves: one half has two wide lanes (fast and medium) the other half is open to those who like to amble up and down. The wide lanes are very wide: enough for simultaneous overtaking in opposite directions. Unfortunately lane is discipline is appalling, and the lifeguards do not intervene. There have been boiler problems for the past 18 months/two years and the pool temperature fluctuates and is often too warm. No issues with water quality in my experience. Showers have finally been sorted (after 18 months) and are nice and hot! Wet-side changing facilities are average for UK council-owned-privately-managed facilities. For better, head over to the dry side changing facilities. Sauna alongside the pool has recently been refurbished and is excellent. People generally friendly. There is lots of free parking.

It's difficult if your schedule leaves no option but to swim after work - the only after-work fitness swimming session begins at 9 PM, often in a pool shared with water aerobics and clubs. Last week, we were given one tiny lane to swim in while the water aerobics was going on.
