The times they are a-changin’: Charlton Lido’s winter timetable announced

It’s officially autumn, despite the late burst of September sunshine, and autumn means three things for Charlton Lido swimmers: swimming in the dark on weeknight evenings (try it – I promise you it’s one of the very best things you can do in Charlton on a Monday night); the water temperature being noticeably higher than the air temperature making it easier to get in the pool and harder to get out; and – less positively – a reduction in pool opening hours.

Here’s how it’s looking for Autumn/Winter ’18:Charlton Lido timetable winter 2018

Charlton Lido Winter Pool Timetable October 2018 to March 2019:

Monday: 6.30am-2pm & 4pm-8pm
Tuesday: 6.30am-2pm & 4pm-8pm
Wednesday: Closed
Thursday: Closed
Friday: 6.30am-2pm
Saturday: 9am-5pm
Sunday: 9am-5pm

The popular Swim Doctor drop-in sessions will continue on Monday evenings and Friday mornings, with the current Wednesday morning session moving to Tuesday mornings.

We’re grateful to Friends of Charlton Lido for passing this information on.
