Designed for swimmers of all abilities, from absolute beginners to Olympic and Paralympic champions, London Aquatics Centre offers a wide-ranging programme of activities, from fun and family sessions, lane swimming, diving, swimming lessons, diving lessons, community swim sessions and other aquatic disciplines. The facilities are second-to-none – so much so that Tom Daley has made it his new training ground.
In 2012, the spectacular London Aquatics Centre, designed by architect Zaha Hadid, provided the breathtaking backdrop to countless world records and Ellie Simmonds’ dramatic swim into the history books.
Now everyone will be able to feel the thrill of swimming under that familiar wave-like roof, and enjoy some of the best community swimming facilities in the country for the same price as local leisure centre swimming pools. And, with a total seating capacity of 2,500, watch out for world class events taking place in future.
There is plenty of useful information for people planning to come down and swim available on Better's website.
