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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 pool's depth adjustment does not create a deep end and a shallow end, but rather deep and shallow sides, such that each lane is of a uniform depth from one end to the other, but two side by side lanes may be of different depths.
Resident rates apply to those living in postcodes beginning with OX1 through OX4.

Facility Reviews

This pool has been rebuilt and opened in January, 2015. It now has a pool which is 25m long and 8 lanes wide, with seats for spectators. The pool complex includes two other pools for babies/children.

The pool was clean, but the locker rooms currently permit outdoor shoes, so are not as clean as they might be. Nominally, there is lane control. Not crowded, but few people may as yet know about this pool. Because all the pools are under a single roof, there is a lot of noise from (happy) children. One can drive there (free parking three hours) or take a bus.
