Welcome to Bude Sea Pool

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. Friends of Bude Sea Pool (registered charity no. 1143156) relies on the support of Friends, donors and local Business Sponsors as it receives no public funding to keep it open and safe for all.

 

Bude Sea Pool is a popular destination. It is ranked Number One visitor attraction in Bude. In 2020, it received the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice, awarded to attractions in the Top 10% worldwide. Friends of Bude Sea Pool (FoBSP) 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. To manage this, FoBSP relies on your help. Please show your support by volunteering with us, joining as a Friend or making a donation.

Update – May 2021 

FoBSP are delighted to announce that Bude Sea Pool has re-opened following its annual spring repairs, refurbishment and enhancements.  The contractors worked tirelessly in some horrendous weather conditions and did a wonderful job. Thank you to Vanstones, Stainless Studio Ltd and to Bott. Thank you also to the army of volunteers who showed up to do their part. Keeping Bude Sea Pool up and running is truly a community effort. And all in time for half-term. Looking forward to seeing you all back down at the Pool.

Swim – Safe

Billy O׳Mahony of Bude Open Water Swimmers (BOWS) group has written a very useful article about safe swimming and swimming safely in areas of open water .  That article can be found here and we commend it to all as an excellent read.
