You can also use a RingGo app to pay for parking. Alternatively, free parking on Sundays in Woodlands Rd, Park Ave & Park Drive which are a five minute walk away.
The entry price is £10 for adults over 25 years old, £7 for 18-25 and students over 18 (evidence of status required). Towel & sauna sheet hire is included. The Sunday Swim is free to Arlington Baths Club members.
Visitors, guests and newcomers to the swim are welcome. If you do not hold one of the cards above, you must bring photo ID and proof of address eg passport & utility bill; the EU photo-driving licence covers both.
At your first visit, you will need to complete a health form for The Arlington Baths Club, which will be retained by them, and a registration form for The Sunday Swim. We expect you to purchase a swim card on your return visit. This also applies to members of BN. The swim card is valid for the year April to March inclusive. Renewals due by April.
A guided tour of the building will take place at 18.15, so please be prompt.
Do I need to be naked?
There is an expectation that you will be nude when swimming. You can wear a towel in the other facilities, but again most people don’t.
Will there be other women there?
Yes! Many women attend the swim, either on their own or with a partner or friends. Just come along - you'll receive a warm welcome.
What is the etiquette?
Shower before entering the pool and after using the hot rooms / sauna.
Towels are provided for drying and sitting/lying on.
To preserve others' privacy, phones and photography are not allowed.
Tea, coffee, hot chocolate & biscuits, Sunday newspapers and information about naturist events and holidays are available in the upstairs lounge (complimentary, but donations always welcome.) Members meet there for a blether and to catch up on the latest news.
The building is locked at 9.30pm, so please aim to leave by 9.15pm.
I like The Sunday Swim. How can I start coming regularly?
Next time you come, bring your ID and one passport-style photograph 15 minutes before the swim starts and you can apply for a swim card. The card runs for 12 months from the date of joining and costs £10 per year for adults over 25, £5 for 18-25, and full-time students over 18 (proof of age/student status required).
FT students & U26 may gain entry to the swim for £7 each time for the first two months of their membership.
What other facilities are available?
Clothed use of the gym (you will need an induction first by the baths staff.)
