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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The Chingford Leisure Centre and Nuffield Health's Chingford Fitness & Wellbeing Gym share a parking lot, an address, and a post code, but they are two separate and distinct buildings. They are so close together that the location pins for the two facilities on our pool finding maps almost completely overlap.

Facility Reviews

Very warm - ideal for children. Also has an even warmer teaching pool.
Management must have turned the heat down. The pool is cold to get into and I get colder and colder until about fifteen minutes into my swim. Regulars I have spoken with say “It’s always freezing in here.”
It is not significantly colder than other public pools. I always feel chilly the first two lengths I swim wherever I go and then I warm up and forget all about it.
After reading the swimming timetable on the website, I decided to take my girls to swim - only to find that the timetable had changed. When we arrived, we were greeted with rudeness at the reception desk. Once in the teaching pool, my children were told to put the toys back that, up until then, other children had used. Would I return here, NO!

I have visited this leisure centre with my son a few times.I have been turned away due to the swimming pools having been over booked by private swimming lesson classes. And I have had to wait for 30 minutes In order to fit in with their time table. The water Is so cold you have to keep moving In order to warm up and stay warm.
