National Open Water Swimming Centre - Brighton

After much discussion, this has been granted PP by Brighton & Hove Council today

so - a new outdoor 50m heated pool coming to the South Coast


So the National Open Water Swimming Centre is a pool?

They’re even heating it FFS :rofl:

you’ve got the sea next door - what more do you want?? 50m sauna pool and then a quick dip in the freezing Channel - just like Finland - or not


I think the idea is that the national open water swiming centre has a pool to enable you to get comfortable in the water before progressing to open water swimming, there’s logic there.

The national cycling centre has a track and bmx course, but it doesn’t mean those are the only sorts of cycling.

I’m being very generous with my “think” in the first paragraph.

Perfect location for getting in a swim before the Brighton 10k or marathon! :smiley:

Was it so hard to find a photo from those events that they had to come up with this awful composite?
