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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This is a twenty minute walk from the town centre. The facility is clearly not new but in perfectly good condition. The water is at a nice temperature for swimming lengths and not heavily chlorinated. There are separate male and female changing rooms.

In these COVID times, you need to book in advance. The website does not work for non-members, so if you want a casual swim you have to phone (01873 735360) where they will take a booking. But be quick; you can only book two days in advance and there are only eight places in each 45 minute session. For my swim at 12.30 on Friday I had to phone at 8 AM on Wednesday. On arrival ten minutes before the session, I was ticked off the list and allowed in. The swim cost £3.95.

The lockers are out of use but still accessible. The showers are out of use. The instruction to come already changed is not enforced. Once changed, you queue at the far end of the changing room until the shutters keeping you from the pool are lifted. The pool is divided into four lanes. At each end of each lane, there is a plastic seat with a float and a pull-buoy under it. You put the things you didn't leave unsecured in the changing room on a chair and use the relevant lane, keeping to one side both out and back while the occupant of the chair at the other end will do the same. Chatting is not encouraged. The drinks machine has been emptied.
