Welcome to Royal Commonwealth Pool

Important Notice


Due to a swimming gala there will be no 50m swimming available from 08.00 - 15.30 on this date. We will be operating 25m public swimming with lanes from 09.00 - 14.30. Our other pools and facilities will be open as normal throughout, however car parking is likely to be limited. 

Apologies for any inconvenience.

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.
