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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

At 8 AM half the pool was for "rec swimming" and half formed a very wide lane in which elders swam a slow circular pattern breaststroke. A freestyler, I chose to swim between the sides of the circle until politely asked to swim in the adjacent area, as I was disturbing the breaststrokers. The pool is very enclosed - slightly claustrophobic. It felt shorter than 25m; more like 20m. It pays to check the schedule; at times the entire pool is devoted school use. Not wonderful, but OK.
One of its advantages of this pool is that it is open when many other public facilities are closed.
[April, 2014]
The tiles in the pool are uneven and the water is too cold.
[January, 2015]
On January 13, the pool temperature was 29.3ºC (84.7ºF), which, in my opinion, is at the upper end of the range for serious swimming.
The water was choppy, as lanes are separated by ropes, rather than proper wave suppression barriers, which is unfortunately the norm with most council owned (but privately operated and exploited) leisure facilities in the UK.
The pool seems rather dingy due to limited natural light.
