Abbey Meadows Outdoor Pool reopened for the 2021 season on Monday 12th July.

The opening day began overcast but the sun came out as we welcomed The London Lido Ladies!

The Lido Ladies, who are passionate about outdoor lidos and outdoor swimming, brought their distinct colour, flare and unique personality to the pool alongside the leader of The Vale of White Horse District Council, The Spennylympics and the Better Man!

The Spennylympics are local couple Stuart and Charlotte who are undertaking a mamouth charity challenge in aid of Motor Neurone Disease. The Lido Ladies were so inspired by their challenge they have even sent them flowery swim hats and are following their progress. 

There was extensive coverage of the opening on BBC South Today, articles in The Oxford Mail and numerous radio interviews in the build up to opening including live from poolside on opening day. 

Abbey Meadows Outdoor Pool has opened its doors earlier with the first swimmers in the water at 6.30am. Further extensions to opening hours will be happening based on the weather and demand.

The season runs until Sunday September 5th. Please book your swim today via The Better UK App or our website.
