Winter Lane Swimming

  • Water Temperature will vary depending on the weather
  • Monday – Thursday we will not be maintaining a minimum set water temperature
  • Friday we will start to raise water temperature with the aim of getting the pool to 12c for weekends, Saturday and Sunday
  • Daily pool water temperature can be found on the Guildford Lido’s social media channels and will be posted at the Lido reception
  • During the colder months it is recommended that a wet suit be worn, customers not willing to wear a wetsuit once the water temperature drops below 16 degrees will need to sign a disclaimer, this states that the customer understands the risks involved with cold water swimming
  • Adults only (over 18s)
  • Strictly no diving or jumping under any circumstances. Swimmers must slide in or use the steps
  • We recommend you shower just before visiting the centre to help us maintain swimming pool hygiene
  • Cubicles and showers are available pre and post swim
  • Be mindful and considerate of other users in the lane swimming session and keep your distance
  • You will need to complete your activity in your designated time slot and leave once completed to keep the centre safe and allow other customers access to use the facility
