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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 facility opened in May, 2014.
When the 50m pool is set up for long course swimming, the depth is usually set at 2m, throughout; when set up for short course swimming, the most northerly part of the pool is set to a depth of 1.1m. The pools' schedules can be found on the Aquatics Timetable page of the facility's website.

Facility Reviews

A really nice facility and very modern. I only used the 50m pool, which was clean and cool, but not too cool.
[June, 2014]
When I swam on a mid-week mid-afternoon, the 50m pool was divided into two sections: one-half had six lanes across the pool and some recreational space; the other half was unused - but the user numbers were not high enough to make this unreasonable. The water was at a pleasantly cool temperature, ideal for swimming lengths.

Changing is in a mixed "village" facility with lockers that take a returnable £1 coin. No soap is provided in the showers. The facility is shared with the University; the sauna and steam room facilities are reserved for member only. The building is clearly architect-designed and a step up from the norm of local authority pools.
