We are currently closed!

Dear Friend of the Lido,

We hope this finds you all well and you are continuing to keep safe.

In our previous communications with you we had hoped we might be able to open on 1st June. However, with the continuing situation due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, we are unable to do so at this time. Although open water swimming is now permitted, open air pools are still required to remain closed.

In the meantime, our dedicated staff and volunteers are keeping the site in immaculate condition so that it looks wonderful when we do open. {View our latest post on Facebook}

We are keeping our staff safe and the trustees continue to meet regularly to monitor the situation and plan for our reopening. We will, of course, update you with any news we have and look forward to being able to see you later in the summer.

We are so grateful for your continued support and kind messages.

The Lido

The lido is a great day out in the heart of Cheltenham, on the edge of the Cotswolds. It is a children's paradise with slides, a children's pool and a paddling pool. Our 50m pool is also an ideal place to train, two lanes are reserved most days.
