The swimming pool is located on the edge of Cirencester Park in the heart of the Cotswolds in this historic Roman town (known as 'Corinium'). Originally opened in 1869, the pool is fed by natural spring water, heated to an average temperature of 27°C. Together with a children's paddling pool and sunbathing patio, our pool offers you a wonderful swimming experience in a fantastic location.
We provide a broad range of swimming activities including:

  • Aqua Aerobics - Fun exercise sessions with music and "encouragement" from our resident aqua aerobics' instructor and the rest of the pool team! Pre-booking required
  • Drop in Swims - Every weekday afternoon from 3pm to 5pm and from 10:15 to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays, Just turn up and swim, no pre-booking required. Main pool and Toddler's pool open, no lane swimming.
  • Fitness Swims - For people who want to improve their fitness and swimming technique. Fast, medium and slow lanes are available. Pre-booking required
