Nestled below famous Edinburgh landmark Arthur’s Seat, the Royal Commonwealth Pool has staged many major diving and aquatic events since it was first opened back in 1970, including three Commonwealth Games – in 1970, 1986 and 2014. The award-winning Grade A listed building hosted divers competing from heights of 1, 3 and 10 metres.

Edinburgh, the inspiring capital, where centuries of history meet a dynamic, cosmopolitan city amid an unforgettable setting, hosted the European Diving Championships at the Royal Commonwealth Pool.
