London Aquatics Centre

For the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, London Aquatics Centre provided a breath-taking backdrop to countless memorable moments such as Tom Daley's first Olympic diving medal and Ellie Simmonds’ winning swims.

Now everyone can feel the thrill of swimming under that familiar wave-like roof and enjoy some of the best community swimming facilities in the country for the same price as local leisure centre swimming pools.
