Leith Waterworld

Leith Waterworld is a public leisure pool located in the suburb of Leith in Edinburgh, Scotland. For years, Leith Waterworld was a perfect haven for those that enjoy swimming related activities, and featured many waterslides, bubblebeds, a wave machine, and other water attractions that thrilled locals and tourists alike. Leith Waterworld opened in 1992 and has been closed and re-opened many times, and officially closed once more in January 2012. There is now a campaign to reopen the pool, and many Edinburgh residents believe this will happen in the near future.

  • Many guests were once thrilled by the fast trip and steep plunge of a flume ride down the river run at Leith Waterworld, which was a great way to cool off in Edinburgh.
  • The wave pool at Leith Waterworld was immensely popular; guests enjoyed bobbing and floating on waves created by the artificial wave machine.
  • Whilst in Edinburgh, many park guests enjoyed taking a dip inside one of the bubble beds where millions of tiny bubbles ricocheted off the body, creating a rejuvenating sensation.

Leith is located just north of the city centre of Edinburgh, so it is not hard to get there using public transportation or walking. One great way to get to Leith Waterworld is to walk along the Leith Walk, a pedestrian trail that runs from the East End of Princes Street into Leith. There are also several bus routes that go along Leith Walk from the Edinburgh city centre, making the area accessible for those that prefer not to walk. In Leith, guests may walk to the park or catch a taxi from one of the train or tram stations.
