Swimming at the Lido | 2021 season


The Guildford Lido team have been working hard preparing the Lido for the season ahead. To safely follow the Governments reopening roadmap and to utilise the Lido in the best way possible, we will be operating a phased reopening of the facility:

For more information on your visit to Guildford Lido, please visit our Important Pool Information page.
Step 3 (no earlier than 17th May) - will see the introduction of public swimming sessions to the timetable, which will coincide with the opening of the slides and paddling pool. Restrictions will continue to apply on capacity numbers for both the Lido and the Workshop gym.
Our online lane swimming booking system is now live, with the gym booking system to follow shortly after. You will need to pre book online to attend any session at the Lido. To book your session click here: https://bookwkg.freedom-leisure.co.uk/SpectrumBookings/guildford
Please pay attention to our social media channels and website as we will be continuing to announce information about our phased reopening.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Guildford Lido very soon.

50 metre swimming pool

Guildford Lido is one of the few remaining 1930's outdoor pools set in 4 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and in the summer months heated to 24 degrees centigrade, the Olympic sized pool is a great place to chill out, meet friends, picnic and of course, swim!

During the summer season the Lido is available for casual visits, early morning swims and private hire. The venue has been used to host a variety of events from outdoor concerts to informal parties and BBQ's.

I love using Guildford Lido. It is a brilliant local resource, one we are lucky to have.


The 10-lane 50 metre pool is open to season ticket holders and members of the public. Throughout the summer season the Lido is open early in the morning for lane swimming sessions and then is open for open swimming during the day.

On certain days during the week and at weekends the pool is open for evening lane swimming.
