Bude Sea Pool is a semi-natural amenity that has provided a haven for free and safe bathing and other water-based activities since the 1930s. Access to Bude Sea Pool is unrestricted and free of any admission charge, although it costs over £40,000 every year to keep it open and safe. Almost 60,000 people visit Bude Sea Pool every year, making it the Number One visitor attraction in Bude.

It is managed by the Friends of Bude Sea Pool (FoBSP), a local charity that aims to preserve, improve and enhance Bude Sea Pool as a free amenity for the benefit of the community and the thousands of people who visit the town every year.  The FoBSP receives no public funding, so we rely on you to give us your support or make a donation to keep Bude Sea Pool going and to enhance this unique facility.

Whats Happening

Bude Sea Pool Dog Show & Swim


FoBSP invite you to attend the first ever Bude Sea Pool Dog Show and fun dog swim (doggy paddle only!) on Sunday 29th October.
As you all know dogs are not normally allowed in the pool but this will be a special ‘one off’ event to celebrate the end of the season so please go back to being good law abiding citizens thereafter!
