Swimming Pool

Our pool is the largest in central London, measuring 33.3m x 11.5m and has a maximum depth of 3.40m.

The pool was built in 1952 and still has the Royal Box (located on the ground floor by Lunchbox Café) which Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother would use when watching the many swimming galas run here. The Beatles, yes those legends of pop, even used our pool for a photo shoot!

The pool is always divided into four lanes set at different speeds. We have floats and pull buoys available, just ask one of our RLSS qualified lifeguards for assistance and they'll point you in the right direction.

Swimming Pool Hygiene

Our pool water is of very good quality and is regularly assessed by an external company.
To enable us to maintain the water quality we ask that our bathers follow some basic rules:

  • Always shower before entering the pool - it has been proven that just rinsing under a shower removes body sweat, deodorants and many other pollutants to significantly improve the water quality.
  • Tie long hair back or use a swimming cap to prevent loose hair getting in the pool.
  • Wear proper swimming attire - everyday clothes bring pollutants into the pool and can absorb water causing it to become heavy.

We also run National Pool Lifeguard Qualification courses every couple of months. For more information please see our NPLQ webpage on the Student Central website.
