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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

It's a great pool: quite new, clean, and well maintained. Check the timetable on its website before going in order to avoid "School Swim Lessons - Private Booking" which will usually mean you can't easily swim laps.

Paid public entry is available, as well as memberships. There's bicycle parking outside and a gym upstairs.

One thing to note, the centre is completely "cash-free" (including the vending machines), so don't forget your debit/credit card. There is a staffed front desk, but you are encouraged to use the self-service touch screens instead. Ironically, the lockers use (returnable) £1 coins...

They could probably do with more lockers, but there are hooks and benches by the poolside that you can use at your own risk. Agree that changing rooms/pool areas are clean and tidy. The individual cubicles are a little bigger than normal and have a couple of hooks thoughtfully provided. There are open-showers at the poolside for pre/post swim rinsing, and three separate shower cubicles. The latter have those annoying push-button taps that provide a generous 2.5 seconds (yes I timed it!) of hot water per go, which is really no good if you have hair longer than a couple of inches to wash. The pool is 1.05m deep throughout, with 3 full lanes, and one "half" length lane. The pool was lovely to swim in.
