Experience the London 2012 Olympic legacy in the London Aquatics Centre’s world class pools. This exciting venue is proud to open the doors for everyone to enjoy.
Public swimming sessions are open to every level of swimmer of all ages. For beginners, children and less confident swimmers, the training pool, split into two 25 metre pools provides an exciting environment for a splash around.
The 50m competition pool used for competition in the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic is now open for you to enjoy. The pool features ten lanes, dedicated to fitness swimming which is labelled as slow, medium, and fast so you can always find a lane with a pace which suits your ability. As you swim, the natural light from the five storey glass windows and views of the ArcelorMittal Orbit is sure to inspire you while doing back stroke! The pool is three metres deep, which is about the height of an elephant, so it’s important to be a competent swimmer able to swim 100m. You must also be 8 years old and over. Please read our Swim Safety Rules
The training pool looks out onto the main gallery, and is directly attached to the family changing area. Set up and split into two 25m pools, the training pool provides the perfect swimming experience for all level of swimmers, including the little ones who are keen to make a splash rather than do laps. Choose from 25m lane swimming sessions or general swim, where you and your friends and family can enjoy the pool in a more relaxed environment.
Each pool is heated, watched over by trained lifeguards, and maintained at the highest standard for swimmers.
