About this Event

Swimming at the Parliament Hill Fields Lido

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, an online booking and payment system is currently in place for the Parliament Hill Fields Lido. This is a challenging time and your cooperation is necessary to enable us to operate safely for you and for our staff.

Please help us by following the below rules and the signs at the facilities, and by keeping to your allocated time.

Sessions

All sessions are pre-book only via this website. Please do not go to the facility without a booking. You will not be permitted entry and session tickets cannot be purchased at the facility.

You may only book one ticket for one session per transaction (family sessions are available here). You may book up to three sessions each week.

Each session will last 60 minutes and will have a limited number of swimmers.Please leave promptly by the end of your session.

Session tickets are available one week in advance and an additional day is added at 12 noon each day - please allow until 12 .05pm for all sessions to appear.

You must be aged 16 or over to swim at this facility during this period.

If you have underlying health conditions, please consult a doctor before swimming.

COVID-19

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 please do not book or attend a session and follow the Government advice.

Symptoms of COVID-19 are:

  • A high temperature.
  • A new cough where you keep on coughing – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more episodes of coughing in a day.
  • Losing, or there being a change to, your sense of smell or taste.

We want everyone to enjoy these swimming sessions safely and therefore we require everyone to adhere to our strict social distancing rules when attending the sessions.

Please follow government guidance on hand washing and bring your own sanitiser.

Swim Safety

When in the water we require everyone to swim individually in their own space, 5m away from others unless they are a member of your household. Please respect the swimmers around you and choose the appropriate lane depending on your speed.

Accessibility

A ticket to allow a carer to accompany you can be added as part of your booking - please email us at HH-swimming@cityoflondon.gov.uk for instructions on adding carer tickets.

A hoist is available for swimmers who require additional assistance to enter or exit the water.

If you wish to discuss any further accessibility requirements, please email HH-swimming@cityoflondon.gov.uk.

Tickets

When you arrive, you will be asked to show either a printed or digital copy of your booking. We appreciate that not all swimmers will be able to show a copy of their tickets. In this case, you will be asked to confirm your name on arrival, and to show a form of ID or a bank card with your name on it.

If you have booked a concession ticket, please bring along a copy of your supporting concession documentation. Concessions apply to full-time students, people aged 60 or over, people with disabilities and people claiming state benefits (including Jobseeker's Allowance).

Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before your session time as you will need to queue outside before entering the facility. This is to ensure we do not have too many people inside the facility at once.

If you have not booked for the session you will not be permitted to enter.

Season Tickets

The sale and use of Season Tickets has been temporarily suspended whilst the timed sessions are in place. All swimmers will need to pre-book and pay for a session to swim at this time. Please contact us at HH-swimming@cityoflondon.gov.uk for more information on this.

Closures

There may be circumstances where the swimming facilities have to be closed at short-notice due to extreme weather such as high winds or lightning storms. Please listen to instructions from Lifeguards on these occasions.

If your session has been cancelled, you will be issued with a full refund.

Refunds/Exchanges

Please note that session bookings are non-refundable. A refund will only be issued for sessions which have been cancelled by the City of London Corporation. Tickets cannot be exchanged to other sessions and are non-transferrable due to NHS Test and Trace requirements. If you cannot attend and wish to cancel your booking, please email HH-swimming@cityoflondon.gov.uk with booking details and we will make the place available for someone else to book a swim.

Do you know a swimmer who can't book online?

There is a phone booking system available only for those who cannot book online or via the smartphone app, with limited tickets available. If you know of anyone who requires this service, please speak to the lifeguards at the Lido or email HH-swimming@cityoflondon.gov.uk and we will provide the phone number.
