Oasis Sports Centre

Sport and fitness Covent Garden
7 Love It
Save it

A 27.5m expanse of blue, the outdoor pool at the Oasis in Covent Garden is a central London revelation to the uninitiated. Once you’ve discovered the open-air heated pool, sun terrace and adjacent indoor pool you’ll be hooked, just like everyone else who’s in on the secret. The Oasis is so popular at hot summer weekends and at peak times that getting any serious swimming done is difficult – best go with the modest aim of splashing about to cool down. The outdoor parts were refurbished in 2011, with new steps to the sunbathing terrace, where there are separate areas for adults and families, and decking beside the café which serves smoothies and ice creams. Swimming is free for Camden residents aged 55 and over between 9am and noon Monday to Friday.

Good swimming facilities in the heart of London. The decor is a little dated but the changing rooms are spacious. Part of the Better chain, this pool is very affordable and even has an outdoor pool - I'll be waiting until the weather gets warmer before trying it out.


I visited this place everyday I was at work during my pregnancy, it is blooming brilliant. When I told people I was off for a swim in the outdoor pool in covent garden they thought I was talking gibberish as surely such a thing can not exist, but not only does it exist but its super duper. The changing facilities are spacious and are kept super clean. There is something really special about being able to swim in a heated pool outside in winter in the centre of London, it is, as the name says, an oasis of calm surrounded by the madness of London. 

A real gem. I cant believe I have never found this before. A heated outdoor pool with sunbathing terrace 5mins from Holborn station! 

I paid just £5.30 and stayed all day. 

I would really recommend. 

Large gym, an outdoor heated pool and indoor pool, 2 studios and 3 squash courts - what a revelation in central London! Not too crowded in the gym and I'll definitely be back to use the sun terrace when the weather is nice!

A fantastic place to work out in!

I signed up online for a free guest pass which allowed me to use the gym and pool and found the staff friendly and approachable.

The gym is hidden away however it is a little gem, range of equipment and not to busy when I went (around midday).

Outdoor pool was nice, water was fresh and again not to busy.

I would definitely recommend.
