Swimming Pools for fun and fitness!


Larkfield Leisure Centre and Tonbridge Swimming Pool offer a wealth of great swimming opportunities.  Choose from leisure and fitness pools, teaching and toddler pools, plus our great outdoor heated pool in Tonbridge.  We offer lessons for juniors and adults, fun Splasharound adventures, aqua classes and much, much more.

We've also introduced great technology to help our Members get more out of their time in the pool.  SWIMTAG, which is free for all Gym & Spa Members to use at both sites records all of your swims, allowing you to monitor your progress, set personal challenges and even take part in online competitions.
