About Chippy Lido
Set in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, The Lido has two heated outdoor pools, a 25m swimming pool and a toddlers’ paddling pool.
It also has a café and a large, tree-lined lawn, making it perfect for families looking for an afternoon’s fun. With dedicated adult lane sessions and other regular activities, such as Aquafit, Synchro and Yoga, it also provides for those clocking up serious lengths, boosting their fitness or simply looking for a place to relax in a natural environment. Whether seeking sport, leisure or fun with friends, The Lido has something for everybody.
Run by local people as a charity since 2004, The Lido is reliant upon the generous support of the public to maintain this treasured facility. This generosity has helped us through the pandemic, but we are recovering from its impact to find we are now faced with exceptionally high and unpredictable price rises beyond our control for gas, electricity and chemicals.
We have done our absolute best to absorb these costs and are keeping ticket prices at the same level they were on closing day last year, with an added discount for frequent swimmers. However, we are not yet in a position to offer season tickets, and so all swims will be sold individually this year through our booking system, which continues to offer you the best choice of sessions and the promise of controlled capacity and a quality experience in the pools, on the lawn and in the café.
As a charity, we do not seek to make a profit, but only to maintain our lovely facility for the future. We cannot compete with the low ticket prices of some larger leisure operators, but we do strive to offer you the best swimming experience and warmest welcome we can, with blue skies (sometimes) overhead, and clear sparkling water. Thank you for your continued support.
