As part of the improvement programme at Crown Pools new turnstiles are being installed. From Monday 2 March work will begin on replacing the existing turnstiles. Customers are advised there will be some disruption in the reception area, but staff will be on hand to offer assistance when needed. Once the turnstiles are installed monthly iCard members will be able to swipe their iCard to gain access to the facility and not have to queue at reception. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
There is no need to book for casual swimming. To find out when public swimming is available choose from the links below or call our recorded daily timetable on 01473 433655.
Sometimes special events, such as galas are held at the pool which can affect our normal timetable and result in one or more of the pools closing for some or part of the day. The sauna/steam room also closes in the event of galas. These changes will be shown on the above links when special events occur.

Children under the age of 8 years must be supervised by a responsible adult over the age of 16. One adult can only supervise two under 8's at any one time. The adult must accompany the child/children in the water at all times.
We recommend that non-swimmers over 8 years old are also supervised.
There is no minimum age at which you can bring babies into the water, although we do recommend they have had their first immunisation injections.
There are two conveniently located car parks either side of the facility.
Facilities at Crown Pools for people with disabilities are listed on the Disability Sport page. You can also find out more about the Big Splash sessions organised by disability charity Optua.
