Hello everyone, I'm still fairly new to the area, i'm looking for swimming pool where i can actually swim for training, not go with the kids. i don't seem to be able to locate such a pool in se1 (i live in se17 ), does anybody know if there are such facilities around and possibly the cost? thanks

I am a member of the Circle Spa - they have kids in the pool during certain hours (I think late afternoon), outside of that there aren't any.

If I was in SE17 I think I'd go the other way to Camberwell Leisure Centre.

Hi. Check out the Downside Centre on Druid Street: www.downsidecentre.com
Really nice pool but limited opening hours...

The fitness first gym in London Bridge has a pool - it's not enormous but isn't particularly well used so if you get there early then it's all yours for some good laps

Have you tried the pool at Guys Hospital? Opening hours are a bit odd, as they have school visits when not open to members. However, it is large, with three lanes and cheaper than joining a gym. Its part of the Thomas Guy Club and you dont have to be a member of staff to join. The entrance is tucked away behind the Greenwood Theatre (which is on Weston Street).

Peckham Pulse usually has a section reserved for lap swimming.

Is that correct? I can't find any info on that on their website

The Marriott County Hall has lovely pool, although expensive (I'm a member but I believe you can get day passes).
