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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

While performing routine maintenance in 2019, structural deficiencies in the roof were discovered that necessitated closing the centre for safety reasons. The condition of the facility is being evaluated and council is expecting a report in April, 2020, on the repairs that will be needed.
The report has been delivered but, as of June 2, 2020, no decision has been taken as to whether the facility will be repaired or reopened. We'll keep checking.
In light of the disruptions caused by the Corona pandemic, the closure of the facility is expected to continue for at least a year from August, 2020.

Facility Reviews

Nice pool, not too warm. The morning lane swims (6.30 – 8 AM) tend to be dominated by the local swim club, so if there are more that four members of the public before ~7:15, forget it. They unfailingly take the lane lines out 15 min. early, too. Weekends are a no go for training with lessons and the wave machine. Mon., Thurs. and Fri. night sessions are quiet and you get the pool to yourself. Lifeguards do not enforce lane etiquette.
Lockers in the changing village require a padlock - bring your own or buy one from reception for £5.00.

There is a nice cafe on site.
