Reconnect with swimming this summer

We are proud to support the Reconnect: Kent children and young people programme at Faversham Pools this summer.

About the programme:
Reconnect is a Kent County Council led, community based programme designed to get Kent’s children and young people thriving following the pandemic.

Clubs, businesses and organisations have come together to create fabulous opportunities for children and young people. Together they can have fun, catch up on missed learning, engage in sports and activities, trips and experiences, receive mental health support, regain their confidence and gain access to career development opportunities.

Find out more about Reconnect here and check back to see Faversham Pools’ offers very soon.

Faversham's Community Pool

Year-round indoor swimming, with heated lido and family fun pools in summertime and beyond. Faversham Pools is a registered charity, bringing affordable exercise to the community. We rely on the income received from our customers to provide and continuously improve all of our facilities and activities. 

Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise, no matter your fitness level. It has the power to give your muscles a makeover, give your heart a powerful workout, turn back the clock and can even calm a busy mind, reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression.

At Faversham Pools we offer a range of sessions to ensure you achieve your health and fitness goals, whatever they may be.


How to find us

Plenty of parking is available just a few steps from the Pools, in Faversham’s Central Car Park. Access is via Bank Street and Leslie Smith Drive. You can park here for up to 4 hours. Long stay car parking is available in Partridge Lane, a short walk away.

Buses stop a short walk away, and Faversham railway station is less than half a mile from the Pools.
