Cirencester Open Air Swimming Pool is a firm favourite with locals and visitors, and it's easy to see why!

One of the oldest outdoor swimming pools in England (built in 1869), this unique pool offers the chance to swim in natural spring water heated to an average 27°C (80°F).

Located on the edge of Cirencester Park, there is a 28-metre main pool with a slide, separate children's paddling pool, sunbathing patio, benches and tables. The tuck shop serves hot and cold drinks, ice creams and snacks.  

The Pool is ran as a non-profit charity, and it remains at the heart of the community, operated by a dedicated group of volunteers.
