Woburn Lido

Woburn Lido is the nearest outdoor pool to Northampton and this summer I am definitely going to give it a try.

The Swimming Pool is approx. 22m x 8m and near Woburn Abbey Estate.

Normal opening times are 12noon to 7.30pm but due to the current heatwave the times have been changed. As of 2 July 2018 two sessions are operating 10:00am to 13:30pm and 14:30pm to 19:00pm.

It costs £5 per adult and £4 per child under 3's are FREE.  You can purchase a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) £15.

The pool is heated and run by volunteers. It is cash only so please remember to get some on your way. There is parking available at the Lido but if this is full you can use the car park at the village hall or behind the Woburn Hotel and walk the short distance.

You can call 01525 290611 to confirm opening times or check their Facebook page which is updated regularly.
