Welcome to 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 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. (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 – April 2021
We’re back in business for the foreseeable future. Monday 29th March saw Bude Sea Pool official open again, following the Government ‘roadmap’. From Friday 2nd April, the Pool staff will be in force and on full-time duty for the two weeks of the Easter holidays. Staff hours as always depend on tide times and weather, but follow those of the RNLI stationed above the Hub, operating 10am-6pm. From 19th April until the 1st May, Pool Staff will be present only on weekends.
From 12th April, the FoBSP shop in Summerleaze Car Park will be open once more. Expected opening hours are from 10am-4pm during the week. Volunteers-willing, hopefully weekends will follow too. Our online shop will remain open, delivering locally or via Royal Mail for those further afield.
