Open Saturday 27th May until Sunday 10th September

Ingleton Swimming Pool is a registered charity (Ingleton Rural Community Association CIO) and all monies raised by our activities are used to keep this unique facility open for use by the general public.

We are open for around three months during the summer season from the end of May until early September.

We are located near the centre of the village, down the hill from Ingleton Youth Hostel in a riverside park setting. Parking is available in the village.

Ingleton's open-air 20m heated (to over 80F) swimming pool is an idyllic must visit place to experience outdoor swimming and to enjoy yourself in a fun and relaxed environment.

We are a very popular village attraction with both locals and visitors so on busy days please arrive early. During especially busy periods we operate a coloured wrist band system to ensure everybody gets to use the pool on a rotation basis.

Please look at the Opening Times calendar for a detailed breakdown of what we offer and when.

We accept private Pool Hire bookings if you would like to hire the pool.


We offer various swim sessions open to the general public on a daily basis during our open season, plus additional specific Adult Member Only swim sessions. During the school holidays there are organised swimming lessons for children. Please look at the Events page for more information.


The swimming pool was originally dug out and built by local volunteers in 1933 and the workers included miners from the New Ingleton Colliery (which closed in 1936). Our History page contains more information.

The pool is now managed by two committees consisting members of the local community who give their time on a voluntary basis. We are continually undertaking a programme of pool improvement and modernisation as funds allow.
