Guildford Lido will reopen on Monday 29th March 2021

Exciting news the Guildford Lido will reopen on Monday 29th March 2021.

The lido will be reopening in phases, this first phase involves the opening of the 50m pool only, specifically for pre-season lane swimming.

Pre-season lane swimming timetable:

(All sessions last for 1 hour and start every 15 minutes)

Morning sessions Monday - Thursday 7am - 12noon

(last bookable session 11am)

Afternoon sessions Tuesday & Thursday 4pm - 7pm

(last bookable session 6pm)

Friday - Sunday 7am - 4pm

(last bookable session 3pm)

To come lane swimming at the lido you will have to pre-book your session online. Here is the link to our booking page:

Current members and current Active card holders can book online 14 days in advance, guests and non members can book online 7 days in advance with bookings going live at 7am each morning.

For the full operating hours and programme up to 1st May 2021, please click this link 

The pool water will be heated, but due to the time of the year the temperature will range between 16-20 degrees so therefore it is recommended that wetsuits are worn. 

Due to the Government's restrictions we have had to introduce some new temporary safety measures. There will be no access to the changing facilities, you will be required to turn up changed and ready for your swim and after you have completed your session you will be required to leave to help keep the Lido safe and allow other customers access. Up until Monday 12th April when the changing facilities will reopen and the grounds will reopen.

Hot and cold refreshments will be available on site for take away only.

Season tickets will be available from 29 March!

We are reopening in phases to utilise the Lido in the best way possible while following the Government's reopening roadmap.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Guildford Lido from Monday 29th March 2021.
