Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We've taken the decision to close all of our leisure centres, swimming pools, community centres, Turkish Baths, our two museums, the Mercer art gallery and tourist information centres.

This is with effect from end of business tonight (Friday 20 March) and these buildings will remain closed until further notice. The decision is in line with updated government guidance and reflects the need for us to do what we can to encourage greater social isolation in light of the spread of the coronavirus. If you are affected by these closures, there is no need for you to get in touch. If you are a member of our venues, having swimming or diving lessons or other regular activities, your membership will be suspended and you will not be charged for April or May. If you have existing bookings, you'll be contacted over the coming days.


We offer a diving training scheme for competitive divers or athletes. This is run in partnership with Harrogate District Diving Club.  The club provides volunteer support to enable our divers to maximise their potential.

Diving squads are the next step from the Learn to Dive scheme and focus on competitive diving from club level through to national competitions and events.

Entry level is upon completion of stage six of the Learn to Dive scheme or by invite from the coaching team.

For more information, or to book, please contact the Hydro at hydro@harrogate.gov.uk, by calling 01423 556768 or you can contact us online.
