Ilkley Lido will make a splash as it officially re-opens tomorrow – Saturday, 29 April.

The Lido will be operating Spring opening hours of Monday to Friday 7:30am to 8:30am and 2:30pm to 6:00pm and Saturday and Sundays 10:00am to 2:00pm. The full summer Lido programme and opening hours will begin after the May Spring bank holiday from Saturday, 27 May.

The water temperature varies on a day to day basis, there is an outside water temperature display on view to customers. If the lido drops below 10 °C the pool will close.

Phil Barker, Bradford Council’s Assistant Director of Place, said “Ilkley Lido is a great place for a family day out with its wide range of activities and its location, close to Ilkley town centre and on the edge of the beautiful Ilkley Moor. We are delighted that we are able to extend the opening season and are looking forward to welcoming swimmers of all ages.”

The Bradford-Council run venue is one of the top ten open air pools in the country. The Lido, built in 1935, has a 45-metre stretch of shallow water and slide for children, a fountain pool and a lagoon-shaped pool for swimmers. It is surrounded by a grassy area for relaxing on sunny days and has far-reaching views across Ilkley Moor. There is also a cafe, tennis courts, putting green and bowling green.
