Kids' Summer Splash
Dive into family fun this summer as Kids Summer Splash brings you delightful dock swimming, super sandpits, tasty food, cooling drinks, and much more.
Grab your towels and take a swim in a large lido built out into the waters of Royal Victoria Dock. Plus, there’s a shallow end for younger children to have a paddle.
Don’t forget to bring a bucket and spade so you can get creative in one of the sandpits, or simply relax in one of the family chill-out zones, surrounded by the striking architecture of the Royal Docks.
If all that fun has given you an appetite, the snack shack will be open for you to grab a refreshing drink or bite to eat.
Kids’ Summer Splash is free to attend if you want to lounge on a deckchair or play in the sand, but if you want to swim in the lido you must book your hourly slot in advance.
For anyone not feeling too confident in the water, we’re running swimming lessons, which you’ll need to book in advance. Swimming in the open like this is a really fun way to have you splashing about in no time.
If you’re heading down to the opening weekend of Kids Summer Splash (31 July and 1 August), you can catch performances by contemporary circus company Upswing whilst there! There will be two performances each day at 12pm and 3pm. You can also book your child into an Upswing circus workshop, please check out our Upswing Listing for more details.
