We had a queue to get in but it was a scorcher of a day. £6 for adults. There’s parking just outside. The pool was lush on the warm day. They say it is heated but it felt quite cool. Maybe that was because it...More

Whilst it is almost twice the cost of an indoor swim at £6 for adults it is very much worth it as you can take your time in between swimming and sunbathing. Loungers are available for £2.50 and there is a basic café, although the...More

It is a privilege to have this in Petersfield. It is very popular when the kids are in holiday for good reason. The diving board and the size of the pool. When you are lucky enough to have it on its own - amazing.

It’s a charity and there is a sign saying it costs £500 a day to run the pool. It’s worth every penny though as it’s clean, well maintained and just a lovely place to be in the hot weather.
