How to get to Townsend
Driving Townsend School is only four miles from Harpenden Pool, a nine to 12 minutes’ drive. There is car parking on site and on nearby residential streets. Public Transport via Bus The 321 Sapphire from will take 21 minutes to the nearest bus stop, a short walk from the school.What happens if you do not want to come over?
We want to be able to take all our swim school over to the temporary location. However, we do understand that some dates and times may not suit, or there may not be spaces available. All customer accounts will be frozen free of charge and prioritised spaces at the new Leisure centre, if you are unable to book a place at Townsend. You also have the right to cancel your membership should you wish to do so. Should this be the case then you will be able to cancel within the 1 month cancellation period. Anyone that has cancelled will be re-contacted once the new facility is due to open to re-book. However, priority will go to those that have stayed with us.

If you can’t attend booking dates at Harpenden Public Halls, please email our Swim Manager Nathalie on swim.harpenden@1life.co.uk
Or alternatively, call reception on 01582 767722.

Thank you for your patience.
