Charlton Lido – not always this quiet in the summer…
Good news for swimmers: Charlton Lido’s summer timetable starts soon:
7 day-a-week pool opening starts again on Tuesday 29th May:
Mondays 6.30am – 8pm
Tuesday-Friday 7am – 8pm
Saturday-Sunday 9am – 5pm.
In other lido news, the
cafe will re-open Wednesday 23rd May, opening hours to be announced.
The start of summer opening hours should also mean it’ll be possible to fit in a swim before the
Greenwich Book Festival event being held in the lido’s upstairs cafe on June 14th.
As ever, we recommend checking the
website for the latest pool opening information.

Good news for Charlton Lido swimmers as GLL
announce that the main pool will open until 9.30pm on Wednesday, ‘until further notice’. It’s to be hoped that if this proves popular then late opening will be extended through the week (more publicity may help, though: this particular Better Swim member only found out by checking GLL’s website; an email to members would surely help raise awareness of what is clearly a positive development).
