It is with a heavy heart that we will not be re-opening Guildford Lido for the remainder of the 2020 season.
We have been working with Guildford Borough Council and have reviewed all possible options that could meet the government restrictions and Swim England’s safety guidelines. We all felt a programme of pre-bookable one hour lane swimming sessions was not going to meet customer expectation or needs.
It would also not be sufficient to make the operation of the venue cost effective for the remaining six week season. However, lane swimming will be on offer at Guildford Spectrum in the competition pool during August and September.
We know that Guildford Lido is a much loved local attraction where families and groups of friends come to relax and socialise for the whole day. Under the new coronavirus guidelines, Freedom Leisure would be unable to offer visitors that experience.
