Since the Government announced that outdoor pools and lidos could re-open from Saturday 11 July, many facilities have gradually begun to re-open their doors to swimmers.

Although for others, financial struggles, coupled with the lack of notice given by the government to allow for a safe re-opening, mean that many still remain closed and are likely to for some time.

Courtesy of the Lido Guide, here's a list of lidos and outdoor pools which are currently open.
