    I love this pool! It's by far the best swimming pool I've been to. You have the choice of the crystal clear water of the Olympic pool or smaller and shallower training pool. Always very clean!

    Great for lane swimming, just remember to get in the right one as there are separate lanes for slow, medium and fast...

    A state of the art building set in the open space of the Olympic Park. The olympic sized pool is amazing and carries the emotions from London 2012, but the training pools are now overcrowded.

    Great pool. Bring own gel and googles and don't forget your £1 from the lockers! Saw the cleaning stuff take 3 coins in a row

    Avoid early evening - can be very busy, especially if there is a completion on and main pool is closed.

    Amazing swimming pool. But don't swim in the fast lanes if you don't swim fast

    STUNNING pool. Terribly run with poor staff, but don't let that put you off.

    An uplifting swim. Bright, airy, great staff. I'd say get in before 10.30 at the weekend - plenty of room at that time
