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, although it costs over £40,000 every year to keep it open and safe.
Almost 50,000 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.
Following the advice from the Government with the latest measures to prevent further spread of the Coronavirus whilst also looking after the health and mental wellbeing of our staff and volunteers, it has been decided to temporarily close the office in Summerleaze Car Park and the Sea Pool Hub.
We recognise that swimming is fabulous exercise, meeting the guidelines laid down by the Government, and that the Bude Sea Pool is a superb venue in which people can still get their exercise during this turbulent period. We do ask that swimmers and supporters are extra vigilant in terms of their Health and Safety and that you follow Government guidelines to avoid the spread of the virus.
We will be using this website to keep you abreast of the developments at the Sea Pool as they unfold.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
