Swim Dynamics Coaching Venues


Above is one of my favourite swimming spots on the Isle of Mull, but locally I like to swim in the lakes at Box End and Luton Hoo, and in the pools at Inspire (Luton) and St Albans School. 

Box End Park
Box End Park: £5/swim bookable in advance

  • There is a first aid trained safety observer present during all swimming sessions.

  • The lakes are spring fed so the water is incredibly clean and safe for swimmers.

  • All the staff are super friendly and couldn’t be more welcoming and helpful.

  • The site has a huge, free secure car park, lockers, changing facilities that include hot showers; and two eating places: one I like to call the posh restaurant and the other, ‘the bacon butty shed’ (I prefer the informal one as that’s where everyone gathers on the grass and there’s a good vibe).

  • The music from the wakeboarding crew gives the site a fun, relaxed feel.

  • They have a full range of rental wetsuits available for hire priced at £5 (these can be hired from reception on arrival).
