Sports, leisure & the Arts Swimming in Manchester

Free swimming

If you are aged 60 or over, you can enjoy free swimming in Manchester every day, all year round. And if you're aged 16 or under then you can enjoy free swimming at some of the city's swimming pools during all school holidays. So what are you waiting for?


Aquativity is a programme of water based activities for all ages, genders and abilities. All of the sessions are instructor-led and are just £1 a session (or £2 if you live outside Manchester).

Why not try Aquativity's Learn to Swim classes, take your little ones along to Funquatics (a fun play programme to help your child be confident in the water) or aqua natal classes for soon-to-be mothers.

Discover swimming activities for kids under 5, as well as adult sessions where you can learn to swim, or brush up your swimming skills in mixed and ladies only sessions.
