The London Aquatics Centre, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is a vibrant and accessible facility open to the whole community. Following its transformation after the Games the facility is now open.

The world class Olympic legacy houses two 50m pools, a diving pool with boards and platforms up to 10m, a dry diving zone, a state-of-the-art gym and a crèche.

We work in partnership with British Swimming and the Amateur Swimming Association to develop performance programmes for all Aquatic disciplines based on the successful Beacon model. We are also working with British Swimming who plan to use the centre regularly as an international training venue for elite athletes including Tom Daley.

In addition we are playing host to a number of National and International sporting events throughout the year. The venue also includes catering and meeting room facilities.
