There is no pre purchase tickets, it will be pay on the door only. First come first served so please arrive early.
Some breeds of dog are naturals in the water and others sink like a brick and we are happy for you to enter the water with your dog if they need the help. If you’re at all unsure about your dog’s ability to swim in the water then please come ready and prepared to enter the water. You know your dog best.
We insist on there being a minimum of one adult to one dog on entry to the site (adult aged 16+).
The Dog Swim is taking place at the end of our Cold Water swimming period and as such the water temperature will be lower than our normal operating temperature of 25C. The temperature will have decreased to below 21C on the day of the Dog Swim.
This is a new event for the lido and as such we do not know the level of interest. Please be aware that we will restrict entry if there is a large attendance.
When you arrive at the lido we ask that you keep your dog on a lead when they are in the grounds and only let them off when they enter the water.
Please be a considerate dog owner, cleaning up afterwards and also removing your dog away from any barking arguments.
There will be lifeguards on duty but their responsibility is for the safety of you in the water. The dog’s welfare remains the responsibility of the owner. You will be expected to sign a disclaimer upon entry to the site.
Entry cost is £5 per dog.
N.B. This is the last use of the pool in our summer season and the pool will be highly dosed with chemical and cleaned before the next human use on our Christmas Day Swim.
