Cars can be parked at the usual Lido Car Park and you can enter through the lido side gate.


The lido is a fantastic large venue for trying the sport for the first time or practising those skills you would prefer not to do at the canal.

Aim to arrive around 5-10 mins before the session time to provide a bit of extra time to get ready, you should only enter the venue when you can see that both a lifeguard and senior volunteer is present. You must ensure you register and collect a bib before getting changed with all members of your party present when registering. Our volunteers will do the best they can to get you on the water as soon as is possible, however you should only enter the water once you have, registered, a volunteer has ensured you have adequate and correctly fitted safety equipment and the duty volunteers in florescent orange bibs have said it is safe to do so.
