Swimming at the pool - all year round, indoors & out

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.
