For the swimmers and those who like to complete a few lengths as part of their fitness regime, the Lido has numerous exclusive lane swim sessions throughout the summer season. These sessions take place either in the mornings or in the evenings every day of the week. During the summer the pool is heated to 24c.
Lane swimming sessions will be available in the morning, evening and throughout the day during general swim sessions. The number of lanes available during the general swim sessions will vary day to day and be dependent on weather and demand.
- Under 16s are permitted for lane swimming only when accompanied by an adult.
- We do not allow groups of under 16s at these sessions.
- Wetsuits are permitted during these sessions only.
Throughout the winter months we do run Winter Season Lane Swimming sessions.
