Good news for Charlton lido swimmers as GLL announce extended weekday opening hours from this week. The pool will be open 6.45am to 8pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to 5pm on the weekend. This will be especially welcome for those swimmers whose working hours make it otherwise impossible to use the lido during the week. As London temperatures soar, there’s never been a better time to try Charlton’s outdoor pool.
Last week GLL suggested on Twitter that opening hours would be extended once the refurbishment is completed, but was unable to confirm how late they’d be staying open. If you want to swim in the evenings beyond the summer, let them know. If feedback on this site and Twitter is anything to go by, there’s definitely demand for post-work swimming in SE7.
As ever, we’re keen to hear your thoughts on the lido. Four months since its reopened it’d be interesting to get your feedback- let us know in the comments below!
