Aqua Vale Swimming And Fitness Centre

  • Aqua Vale Swimming and Fitness Centre has reopened and is following UK government advice regarding COVID-19.
  • Make a splash at the various pools at Aylesbury Swimming Pool.
  • Enjoy this fun day out where the kids can get active and develop their swimming skills.
  • Dive into the 25 metre swimming pool with eight lanes.

With Britain basking in wonderful sunshine and rising temperatures (let's hope we've not jinxed it), what could be more refreshing than a lovely cool dip? But forget paddling pools in the garden; make a real splash in this Aylesbury swimming pool. There's no better time to take the plunge.

In Aylesbury, at Aqua Vale Swimming And Fitness Centre, the doors are open for a swimming experience like no other, with three brilliant pools to choose from. Feel like you're on holiday at the leisure pool thanks to the palm trees dotted around. The leisure pool is a great swimming pool for kids, complete with water features, flumes and slides. There's even a lazy river! The glass house pool can be accessed via the relaxing lazy river and has a retractable roof for an open air swim. Finally, the 25m competition swimming pool has eight lanes for when you want to get serious about your swimming. Kids are welcome, however, they'll need to be competent swimmers and be able to keep up with their lanes. You'll also find the Aylesbury gym if pumping iron is more your thing.

The centre offers some amazing sessions like the Aqua Vale swimming fitness classes. Their child and adult swimming sessions are award-winning so be sure to book yours. You can also get your workout fix in the gym. You'll find 100 work-out stations, the latest cardio equipment, a free weight zone and trained fitness advisers if you need help.

If swimming feels too much like hard work why not try a hop-on-hop-off river cruise instead? Or be brave and try wild swimming.
