Summer has Landed at the Exeter University Outdoor Swimming Pool

With all of this lovely sunshine on the go I decided to take a little dip in the pool over the weekend. Just a quick stroll off Prince Charles Road and I arrived at Exeter University's outdoor pool. A delightful oasis on a lovely sunny day in the city, the 25m pool has a lane swimming section but most of its visitors are just in it to make a splash. Families in waders and students catching rays, it's relaxed friendly and an easy alternative it you haven't gotten up early enough to make it to Exmouth for the day.

If you're planning to go on your own, travel light as they have changing rooms but no lockers.  The cost of a single swim is just £3 for adults and free for under 5s if you're not a member -which is petty good, because you could easily stay all day. There are picnic tables and a shop next door if you fancy a bit of lunch.

All in all a good day out.

Cornwall House Swimming pool is open daily from 8am-8pm, from now until 21 September 2014.
