Cirencester Open Air Swimming Pool
Originally built in 1869 our unique pool offers you the chance to swim in natural spring water heated to an average temperature of 27°C (80°F) throughout the summer months.
Located on the edge of Cirencester Park, we have a 27.5 metre main pool together with a separate children's paddling pool and sunbathing patio. Our pool 'Tuck Shop', run by a team of dedicated volunteers serves a variety of homemade cakes, ice-creams, snacks, hot food, hot and cold drinks.
We run various activities and events throughout the summer season including:
- Dedicated morning and evening lane swimming sessions.
- Aqua aerobic sessions twice a week
- Parent and toddler sessions
- Youth evenings
- Adult only swims
Booking a Swim Slot
We have been inundated with booking requests for a very number of limited swim slots due COVID19 Restrictions we have never had to face before. As of Saturday 1st August we have more than 4,100 registered users trying to book these swim slots. COVID19 restrictions mean we cannot add any more capacity. Our problems are compounded by the fact that other pools in the area are not open, so we are taking their load as well.
Trying to book for today or the next few days is virtually impossible. Those slots will be taken. You need to think a week in advance if you wish to come. Even then it is a bit of a lottery.
Please don't give our team (all volunteers) a hard time, they are trying their best to provide our facility to you, the general public
