Now over 50 years old, the Commonwealth Pool is among Scotland’s most iconic leisure centres. From hosting the Commonwealth Games in 1970 and in 2014 to playing an integral role in keeping Edinburgh active on a daily basis, the Commonwealth Pool has it all. We’re proud to have a top-spec gym, the city’s only 50-metre pool and a whole host of other spaces you can stay active. 

The Commonwealth Pool is easily accessible by public transport, car and even by bike, so you can warm up on your way here! We also run a successful coaching programme. Read more about this here.
