Charlton Lido

Post by sophie »

Okay, I know it’s not Sydenham BUT thought it deserved a shout out!

All swimming is good but given the fact that local indoor pools are still closed (although I believe Downham has reopened) and the amazing weather I figured it was worth a try swimming outdoors. I have been unsuccessful in booking slots for swimming in Beckenham Place Park (btw if anyone does want to book slots the online booking for each week is made available at 9am on Saturdays) and also Brockwell Lido. I then remembered I had seen Charlton Lido on the news when they opened back up.

Anyway I had my first swim there yesterday, went back today and have another booked tomorrow. It is brilliant. The lido is clean, the sessions are organised efficiently and the staff are friendly and helpful. They do lane swimming sessions and parent and child sessions as well.

There are also hot showers poolside and outdoor cubicles for changing.

I know this sounds a bit like a Trip Advisor review, sorry! 😃

Thanks, I'll tell him, although I don't suppose it will put him off.
