London Aquatics Centre

Part of the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic venues, was that they opened after the Games to be vibrant, well-used spaces for the local community. We opened to the public on 1st March 2014. Our world-class facilities, including two 50 meter pools, 25 meter diving pool and diving facilities, are open for the public to use, as is our state-of-the-art gym and fitness facility. Since opening, we’ve welcomed 2 million visitors. Every week, more than 3,500 children and adults learn to swim with us and more than 600 people learn to dive.

The iconic London Aquatics Centre is like swimming in no other pool in the world. After hosting the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic games, the world-class venue is open for you to use. We have three pools for use by the general public, clubs and professionals; for hire as an event space or for filming opportunities.

The Competition pool is the largest at 50m long and 3m deep, set out into  10 single lanes for fitness and competitions. Our Training pool is also 50m, however with it’s movable boom, it can be split into two 25m pools and the movable floor set at a much shallower depth, depending on the session taking place; it’s appropriate for swimmers of all levels. Our Diving pool is a 25m space with a moveable floor, which can be set anywhere between ground level and 5m deep.

Each of our pools is guarded by certified lifeguards, maintained at the highest standard of cleanliness, and accessible directly from the changing rooms. Before visiting please ensure you are familiar with our pool safety rules, scroll down to read in full.  As well as offering a public swimming timetable our range of community-tailored swimming sessions, programmes and lessons can be booked alongside varying membership options covering all of our pools.  Please see our pool programme below or visit the booking page/app to see specific session times.  You can either become a member or pay for one-off swim sessions. Children aged under three years are able to swim for free.
