Attraction Information

Knaresborough Pool arguably ranks as the local children's favourite with the emphasis very much on family and fun with its hot water bubble pool and water flume. However, this family favourite gym has recently undergone a massive transformation in order to provide a new modern and energy-efficient leisure and wellness centre!

You can expect excellent leisure facilities, an outdoor pool, a heated pool, a jacuzzi pool, exercise classes & so much more.
Things to Expect... 
Opening in July 2023, the new leisure centre will be well-equipped with fantastic pool facilities! From a six-lane 25-metre pool, activity pool with flume, (and water slide) sauna and steam room, fitness suite and studio, spin studio and café, there's a lot to look forward too!

One section of the pool is shallow throughout and is particularly suitable for youngsters and learners but there are plenty of opportunities for serious swimmers and adults too.

Until this time, Knaresborough Swimming Pool will remain open seven days a week. On bank holidays they are open from 7am until 4pm.

Head over to the Knaresborough Wellbeing Hub for a wide range of activities and classes. Enjoy a competitive game of badminton or basketball with your friends and family. There is also room for five-a-side matches too! The Wellbeing Hub also doubles up as the ultimate party pad, so why not book your kid's upcoming birthday party here? They'll have plenty of room to run around, dance and play party games. 
There are accessible changing rooms and facilities for those with disabilities.

The Knaresborough Wellbeing Hub is fully accessible for wheelchair users. There are also induction loop systems in place too. 
Food & Drink
You can expect a family-friendly cafe to unwind and refuel in after your day of fun in the leisure pool.
Transport & Parking for Visitors
Situated on the southeast side of Knaresborough at the top of the High street, the Knaresborough pool is easily accessible from the town centre, Only a 5-minute walk, a short bus journey or by car.
If you are visiting by car, you will need to use York Place car park (HG5 0AD) which is a short walk from the pool. Parking costs will be reimbursed (up to two hours) for customers. In order for us to do so, we will need either;

If you are unable to provide a receipt or photograph you can bring the car park ticket on your next visit (please ask at reception for a retrospective reimbursement voucher).
You can expect electric car charging points, bicycle storage and a large modern play area will also open in October 2023.
