Charlton Lido: Spring swimming opening hours announced

Charlton Lido has announced its pool opening hours for Spring 2019, which come into effect today.

The pool is now open 7 days a week, having been closed on Wednesdays and Thursday through the winter. The new opening times are:

  • Mondays – 06.30-14.00 / 16.00-20.00
  • Tuesdays – 06.30-14.00 / 16.00-20.00
  • Wednesdays – 06.30-14.00
  • Thursdays – 06.30-14.00
  • Fridays – 06.30-14.00
  • Weekends – 09.00-17.00

The announcement was made via Instagram and Twitter posts and, at the time of writing, the new times were not reflected in the centre’s online timetable. The latter has not shown accurate opening times for much of this year (you’ll struggle, for example, to find any info on the excellent Swim Doctor sessions which run several times a week).

The Charlton Champion hopes that GLL/Better will provide the centre with a fit-for-purpose website in the near future.

Charlton Lido gym opens – pool to follow ‘for Easter’

Charlton lido’s gym facilities opened this week, with the pool expected to re-open “around Easter”. The gym and studio facilities are in a new building which has replaced the original entrance; new changing rooms for the pool have been built along the east side, though the outdoor cubicles and showers installed for the original reopening in 2012 are still in place. A cafe will open on the second floor above the gym, with ‘sun terraces’ to each side.

Opening times are currently 6am-10pm Monday to Thursday, 6am-8pm on Friday, and 9am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday. Check the official website for the latest opening times here.

The headline adult monthly fee seems to be around £54, although GLL have been advertising deals for existing customers of David Lloyd at Kidbrooke.
