New St Sidwell's Point Animation St Sidwell's Point

A new striking new animation reveals how the city’s state-of-the-art new leisure centre will look when it opens next year.

St Sidwell’s Point is rapidly emerging in the city centre and is being built along a new Exeter Bus Station. Both projects have been funded by the City Council.

Council Leader Phil Bialyk said: “We had an opportunity to tour the St Sidwell’s Point site and view the progress. We saw the two pools, the top floor where the spa and viewing platform will be, and I have to say that those working on site have done a fantastic job.

“The quality is fantastic, and what we will see at the end of it all will be just breathtaking. I really can’t wait for it to open next year.”

St Sidwell’s Point will replace the city’s aging Pyramids swimming pool.

The water quality is expected to be better than at any other swimming pool in the country. A special filtration system will mean there will be minimal chemical content.

Built to healthy building and super energy efficient Passivhaus standards, St Sidwell's Point will include:

  • Main swimming pool and learner pool with moveable floors
  • Confidence pool for young children
  • Spectator seated area
  • Café
  • Health suite, spin studio and two fitness studios
  • Gym
  • Spa facility
  • Children’s soft play area
