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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The water felt like 80° (27ºC). The building is beautiful - vaulted wood ceilings; lanes well lit with no overhead glare, lines on the bottom and walls are very clear, and the lanes are wide.
Very much a serious swimmers' pool, with diving pool serious pool, and a fun pool. Water not always that warm in the serious pool, but lane swimming always on hand which is strictly enforced. Diving and swimming clubs often take over the pool after 5 PM some weekdays during term-time so check first. Well-equipped gym!
It's a nice, big pool. The water is a bit cooler than the usual, but this helps in the workouts. There's a nice diving pool and a fun pool for the kids. There are three changing rooms: male, female and family, which is a nice idea. I've been there at 8 PM, and the lap swim lanes were almost empty. Nonetheless, there was a lot of activity around, with lessons and training, which is always nice to see.
