Public & Family Swim

Lane Swimming. Programmes. Classes

Here at LED we have 25 metre swimming pools at 3 of our leisure centres at Exmouth, Honiton and Sidmouth.


The pools are open from early in the morning until late at night to try and make sure you can get in the water whenever you want to!  We run a number of courses, club programmes and exercise classes that may impact on your time in the pool so make sure you check the timetables or call your local centre before you pack your goggles and come down

As part of our commitment to getting children swimming from the outset, little ones aged under 3 can come along to a public swimming session for FREE!  In addition to this, we also offer a fantastic swimming lesson programme that will take your child as far as they want to swim!


Key Information


We offer various sessions for the public across our swimming pools. These include:

Lane Swimming: The pool is split into slow, medium and fast lanes for all abilities of lane swimmer. Note lanes may be single or double width.

Swim for all: The pool is split halfway, with half of the pool available for lane swimming and half the pool open for all ages abilities and aquatic activities. Inflatables not permitted, but swim aids are more than welcome.

Great news! Customers are no longer required to book Gym and ‘Swim for All’ activities in advance. All customers are reminded to check-in at reception on arrival.

Family Swim: The pool is open for families and casual swimming. There may be a single lane in for mixed ability lane swimming within the session. Swimming aids and equipment may be used. 

Training lanes: The pool is split into single lanes. All abilities are welcome, but this session is designed for the more serious lane swimmers - for example those wishing to follow a training session or swimfit plan. 

SwimFit: Lanes available. A coach or SwimFit activator may be present. 

Learner Pool Sessions: Public swimming in the learner pool (available at Exmouth only). This pool is shallower and perfect for babies and younger children.

Customer stories

I wanted to tone my abs ready for my holiday but going weekly to this session made me realise how much better my posture was and has even helped with my backache at work

I was always sceptical about yoga thinking that I wouldn’t be bendy enough but after my first class I realised there was so much more to it! I’m encouraged to explore postures and whilst the classes can be intense the work goes deep and stays with me long after I’ve gone home
