Swimming has incredible benefits for both your body and mind and is a low-impact way to exercise, no matter what your fitness abilities. We have a whole timetable of swimming sessions, from lane swimming and casual swimming for those looking to improve their fitness to family swims for splash-tastic fun for all ages.

Join Us For A Swim

We have a fantastic lido 35 metre outdoor pool, which is seasonal from April to September. With a shallow fun area for children, a deeper section for more serious lane swimmers and a beach area for infants - a day out at Hinksey Heated Outdoor Pool really is a swimmer's dream.
