CHARLTON Lido will reopen next week following its £2m refurbishment.

The historic lido, with a 50 metre outdoor heated pool, officially opens again on Monday (March 25).

No more closures are expected but work is set to continue behind the scenes until next year on a new gym and exercise studio, as well as new reception, café and seating areas.

The pool will also become a training venue for Greenwich Royals Swimming Club.

Mark Sesnan, managing director of Greenwich Leisure Ltd, which runs the pool, said: "As part of GLL’s legacy commitments, it’s hugely exciting to be able to keep Charlton Lido open year round.  The heated pools mean that even in the depths of winter, the water will be warm and everyone will be able to enjoy the unique experience of ‘open air’ swimming.

"We’re also keen to make people aware of the new leisure facilities that will open on site later this year.  A new gym and studio will mean that even if visitors prefer to stay on dry land, they will be able to enjoy what Charlton Lido has to offer and improve their fitness as well."

Prices range from £6 for adults to £4 for juniors.
