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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

A popular pool that can get hectic. At least one section is usually laned for lengths, if two they're "slow" and "fast" but not well enforced. A third lane is added Tues. and Thurs. eves when "front crawl" is rigorously enforced, even if empty. Staff is often slow in roping off a new lane when a club/learners take over an existing lane. The changing rooms were refurbished in '02/03; a great improvement, but already showing wear. The men's showers are often erratic (slow rather than cold).
A well used pool with, lane for lane, a seemingly somewhat slower cohort of swimmers than at the nearby Putney facility. On weekdays, the pool is generally laid out for lane (lap) swimming until 9 AM, at lunchtime, and again in the evenings. Similar arrangements are usually in place on Saturday and Sunday mornings and on Sunday evenings. Before going, check the current week's timetable on the facility's website.

I used to use the pool a lot. The changing rooms were really filthy and there was lots of dirt in the water. I went back recently and it was worse.
[May, 2014]
The locker rooms were refurbished earlier this year, so they are now in a rather better state than the previous review would suggest.
