"The Best Lido in Britain" - " Amazing Outdoor Swimming Pool"


The water clarity issues have now been resolved and the pool is now open to the public again. To help us minimise future pool closures due to poor water clarity, we would ask if swimmers could apply their waterproof sun cream 15 minutes before the swimming session. This will allow the sun cream to soak in to the skin as advised on most sun care products. Applying before the session will mean no swimming time is lost and the water does not become too cloudy for us to operate safely. The health and safety of our customers is of the upmost importance, we are not advising anyone not to apply sun cream but simply to apply the cream as stated on label, if you have sensitive skin and feel you need to reapply sun cream often we suggest using the higher factors and wearing a t-shirt into the water.
