Whilst there is plenty to see and do in and around Edale, you may need to venture a little further if you want more than endless countryside and fresh air!


Hathersage Swimming Pool

Without shadow of a doubt, Hathersage swimming pool is a must visit, particularly in the summer. A 100′ heated outdoor lido which is now open most of the year (including most of the winter, some of it unheated). As well as the pool itself, there are lovely grounds in which you can stretch out after your swim and dry off. 20 minutes by car or 3 stops on the train from Edale towards Sheffield.

Buxton Leisure Centre

If you don’t fancy swimming outdoors, then Buxton pool is the next closest pool (20 minutes by car) and is a fairly standard local pool with a 25m pool and separate shallow toddler pool.

Hillsborough Leisure Centre

Hillsborough Leisure Centre is a great spot for kids with a couple of slides and a “beach” pool. 35 minutes by car.

Ponds Forge

Ponds Forge is the most impressive of the local pools and is located near Sheffield city centre. It has a reasonable sized play pool and lazy rapids but the main attraction is the 50m training pool for the keen swimmer. Impressive, modern facilities.
