The heated pool is open for the 2023 summer season from this Saturday!
Ingleton’s open-air 20m heated swimming pool is an idyllic place to visit and experience the pleasure and enjoyment of swimming in one of the UK’s best outdoor pools. We hope to provide an enjoyable, fun and relaxed environment for all the family.
We accept walk ups, subject to availability but to avoid disappointment and guarantee yourself a swim it is advisable to book ahead. You can book via our online system which is located at the foot of the Opening Times page.
Please look at the Opening Times for a detailed breakdown of what is on offer and when.
We are happy to accept Private Pool Hire bookings so if you would like to hire the pool for a party, a club event or a family get together then please contact us.
We are located near the centre of the village, down the hill from Ingleton Youth Hostel in a riverside park setting. There is no parking available at the swimming pool but it is available throughout the village.
The swimming pool was originally dug out and built by local volunteers in 1933 and the workers included miners from the New Ingleton Colliery (which closed in 1936). Take a look at our History page for more information. Today the pool is managed through a committee consisting members of the local community who give their time on a voluntary basis. We are continually undertaking a programme of pool improvement and modernisation as funds allow.
Adverse Weather Conditions
During summer thunderstorms or extreme weather conditions we may have to temporarily terminate a swim session or close the pool. As we are an outdoor facility we hope you appreciate that we must ensure that customer safety is not put at risk.
If you would like to make a charitable donation to help us run this great facility then please see our contact page for details – many thanks.
Ingleton Swimming Pool is a registered charity (Ingleton Rural Community Association Charitable Incorporated Organisation No: 1171743) and all monies raised by our activities are put back into the running of the pool to keep this very unique facility open for use to the general public.
From all the committee, staff, volunteers and helpers associated with the pool, we wish you all a great summer and enjoy your time with us.
