Swimming is fun! It’s a life skill that helps you to be safe, adventurous and confident in water and opens doors to a range of aquatic opportunities and water sports. Swimming is also a great form of all-round exercise and is an ideal way to stay fit and active whatever your age or ability.

You can train to swim at a competitive level or you can enjoy a few healthy lengths at your local pool; you decide how much you want to achieve in swimming and set your own goals; whatever level you choose, we have 12 swimming pools across the City so you will never be far away from one!

Individual swimming timetables can be found on each swimming venue page. Click here for more info and enter the name of your venue of choice into the search field. We recommend booking swimming sessions in advance to avoid disappointment.
