We're looking forward to seeing everyone for cold swimming tomorrow!
After some support from the lido guide, we have decided to rescind the guidance published about wetsuits being compulsory.
Instead, you are welcome to make your own call though the staff will be being extra vigilant about getting people out if they are showing signs of being too cold. ...
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the first cold water lane swimming tomorrow evening, 6:30pm till 7:30pm!
In line with ASA guidance when the water is 20 degrees or more no wetsuit will be required.
Water temperatures between 18 and 19.9 degrees swimmers can choose whether they wish to wear a wetsuit or not.
Water temperature between 16 and 17.9 degrees wetsuits will be compulsory.
Once the water temperature falls below 15.9 degrees we will no longer be opening for swimming. ...
Unfortunately, that's us closed for the season. 🔒
A huge thank you to all of the staff and volunteers who help us keep this place open, without them we would have closed years ago. ☺️
We will still be running cold water swims for the brave souls who do open water swimming, more information will soon follow! ❄️
Next year if you would like to be invited to our end of season party pop down before we open to do some volunteering in helping us clean and get things ready for opening! 🎉 ...
We are happy to announce that we will be running cold water lane swimming on a Friday evening and a Sunday morning throughout September for as long as we have the staff available to do so! More details will follow. ...
Outdoor pools always get filled with small stones, sand, leaves and other small bits of debris.
Our pool cleaner, Pablo, sucks up these bits to keep the pool nice and clean. As part of our cleaning schedule the pool cleaner goes into the pool at the end of every day, keeping the water crystal clear!
