Hi all,

Looking to break up a five hour drive with a swim. Anyone know of a public accessible pool just off the A303 (or lake with a shower)?

Cheers

I only know the 303 as far west as Yeovil. I can't think of any decent sized town before that any Yeovil isn't really just off the 303. Are you coming from Kent via M3?

Amazingstoke might be the closest but probably not far enough into your journey ?

That's true, not sure if there is a decent pool there? I've never been.

Durrington has a 4-lane 25m public pool.

Just a couple of miles off the A303 at Amesbury/Larkhill/Bulford.

Now that would be close. I use the route through Larkhill to avoid Stone Henge when I go o and from Somt. Unfortunately it's closed at the moment for roadworks but Durrington should be fine.

Andover is being demolished so no pool there currently but as mentioned Durrington and also Tidworth. Tidworth is a nice pool & lane swims especially at lunch times are pretty quiet.
