Attraction Information

Stanhope Open Air Swimming Pool is the only heated open air swimming pool in County Durham.

The water is heated to a tropical 80+degrees Fahrenheit nearly 30 degrees centigrade, making it an enjoyable experience, come rain or shine!

The springboard in the deep end allows swimmers to show off their prowess by diving in and for younger children learning to be comfortable and happy in water, there is a small, warm, toddler pool.

Facilities include changing rooms with hot showers, picnic tables, and a fully stocked shop selling hot/cold drinks, sweets and chocolate, swimming goggles/floats/hats etc.

They hold lane swimming sessions every day, and on certain days have an inflatable that children (and adults!) attempt to run across, inevitably falling into the pool, only to climb out and try again.

They also have several kayaks available for pre-booked sessions.
