The original Victoria Leith Baths were opened in 1899 by Provost John Bennet, and we’re proud to say that they’re still keeping the local community active today! There’s something for everyone at Leith Victoria, whether you love to log lengths in our Victorian pool or lift weights in our high-spec gym. 

The centre is easily accessible by public transport, car and even by bike, so you can warm up on your way here! We’re also proud to run a successful swim coaching programme. Read more about this here.


There's more changes coming to our lane and casual swim sessions. From 15th August:

  • you won't have to book for any casual or lane swims, simply drop in
  • you won't be restricted to an hour in the pool (dependant on pool opening hours)
  • families can drop in for a Family Casual Swim

You can still book into a Family Fun Session or a Relaxed Swim Session as normal - here's a link to where you'll be able to see our adult/child ratios and all the sessions you can enjoy in our pools.

You can book an activity at Leith Victoria Swim Centre online or via our mobile app for Android or iOS by creating or logging in to your booking account. 


Whether you are a member, have an Edinburgh Leisure discount card or a Pay as You Go account, you'll be able to access and enjoy all the activities available at Leith Victoria Swim Centre. Any problems see our step by step guide to booking classes.

Please read our Booking Terms & Conditions before booking.


Join Edinburgh Leisure with a membership option that suits you, whether you just use Leith Victoria or want access to all our fitness centres and swimming pools across the city. 




We are really looking forward to bringing the summer fun to our centres across the city this year. We have clubs, sports coaching, swimming, tennis, climbing, gymnastics, Clip n Climb and so much more over the holidays.


Whether you are looking for week long 9am - 5pm holiday clubs, with early drop off from 8am and late pick up until 6pm, or just to keep the kids active and learn a new skill for a few hours each day, we have you covered. Take a look here to find out more or book now!

Once you've finished your swim class or gym session, refuel and catch up with friends over a coffee or lunch at our Upmo Eat Café which is now open for business.   

Based across Edinburgh, East Lothian and Mid Lothian, Upmo provides both support and opportunities for adults with learning disabilities and autism. Both the trainee placements and a work experience program include a chance to work in the café here at Leith Victoria.
