Edinburgh Leisure Network

Welcome to Royal Commonwealth Pool

Important Notice

CLOSURE INFORMATION: Friday 29 (pm only) - Sunday 31 May

We are hosting the Edinburgh Open and Grand Prix Swim Meet on the above dates. Unfortunately this means that all our pools and Studio 3 will be closed for the weekend, from 14.00 on the Friday. All weekend swimming, diving and gymnastics lessons are cancelled from 13.00 on Friday.

Friday's 18.05 Pilates class is cancelled and Sunday's Hatha Yoga class will move to Studio 1 at the later time of 11.40. All other fitness classes and the rest of our faciltities will be operating as normal however parking is likely to be very limited.


Sitting in the shadow of the spectacular Arthur's Seat on Dalkeith Road, the 'Commie Pool' is so much more than Edinburgh's only 50 metre pool.

We're proud to offer a wide range of modern health and fitness activities for all the family in our fantastically refurbished venue. The City of Edinburgh Council's £37m redevelopment has revitalised this light and airy 1960s building and given it a brand new lease of life. If you haven't been to visit, we'd love to show you around.
