The Stour Centre boasts some of the finest pool facilities of any leisure centre in East Kent.

The 25-metre main pool, leisure pool and learner pool combine serious swimming with relaxation, fun and thrills for the whole family, all set in a stunning modern environment.


The leisure pool has two 50 - metre flumes, a raging river experience, water jets, cascades and two poolside jacuzzis. (Height restriction of minimum 1.20m applies on red flume).

Little ones can have safe fun in our circular teaching pool, and there's even a bubble pad for the babies to splash around on.

Please be aware that during busy periods such as the school holidays we operate a band system to control the volume of users in the pool and time in the pool may be limited to 1 1/4 hours.

The main pool is widely used for school swimming lessons during term-time so please check the relevant timetable for opening details by clicking on the links above.


All users of the pools must wear appropriate swimwear consisting of trunks / shorts above the knee or plain swimming costumes. Children under 4 must be accompanied by a responsible adult over the age of 16 years of age at all times and on a one to one basis. Children aged 4-7 years must be accompanied by a responsible person aged at least 16 years, on a one-to-two basis.
