Waltham Forest is home to loads of terrific swimming facilities. This eastern part of London is a perfect place to get involved in swimming. It is a cracking way to keep fit and engage in an active lifestyle without putting too much pressure on ligaments or muscles. Swimming pools in the borough vary in size and the largest available is the Olympic 50m length. A selection of the venues have installed diving boards for those swimmers looking to become the next Dan Goodfellow. Showers and changing rooms at the swimming venues mean sports visitors can pop in before work or even at lunch.
