Swimming is a great way to have fun and get healthy, whatever your age or level of ability. At Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre we have 2 swimming pools for our customers to enjoy.  We have a 8-lane 25m Main Pool and a 20m teaching pool. So when it comes to developing your skills, teaching your child, holding a party or just having fun, there’s never been a better time to take the plunge at Swiss Cottage. We also have a Poolpod lift to provide accessible access into the pool.


Swim For All

No matter your swimming or fitness ability, our Swim for All sessions are perfect if you're looking to build your confidence, work on your strokes, or just simply want to enjoy a swim with your family and friends. Our Swim for All sessions run in the Teaching Pool where you are invited to splash about and have fun in the water without being constricted to specific lanes.


Swim for Fitness

If you’re looking for a low-impact way to get fit and healthy, swimming could be the perfect choice. Our Swim for Fitness sessions take place in our bright and uplifting 25-metre indoor pool which boasts 8 lanes, thus allowing members to swim in either slow, medium and fast lanes, so you can take things at your own pace.
