brockwell lido opens on Monday (brrr)
Ah, the memories of (at least a couple of) long hot summer days punctuated by 3-minute heart-stoppingly frozen swims that shock your lungs so much you can't breathe. Great stuff. We have no idea if it's actually that healthy for you, but it's fun and lovely so it doesn't really matter.
May is effectively 'shoulder season' so in the week the Pool opens for the morning, shuts for lunch and then reopens again in the afternoon. But it will be open all day at weekends, and goes to full-day every-day openings in June.
Full details of times etc here.
You will not see us quietly singing muh-nah-muh-nah as in the notorious video of the lido in its former glory days which we simply can't resist sheepishly re-posting on here.

UPDATE - we've just heard this Audioboo from Jason Cobb, who's down there right now. Hope the murk clears by the opening...
