At London School of Diving we offer high quality scuba instruction from entry level course through to instructor level training.
We pride ourselves on the standard of excellence we set and the exceptional service we provide.
Training is carried out in our custom built dive training facility. This includes our on-site heated dive training pool and state of the art classroom facilities.
London School of Diving will be having its annual Open Day on Saturday 13 October from 9am to 6pm. As usual, there is no entry fee for this event, so we hope you will pop along to see us.
What's going on?
Loads will be going on for existing divers and newbies alike!
For example, we will be offering fantastic discounts across our range of PADI courses and for those who have never tried diving before there will be FREE Try Dives in our on-site pool.
There will be great discounts on kit from Mike's Divestore as well.
We will have a host of guests from inside the scuba industry where you will be able to try out some of the latest gear in the pool, some of which has yet to be reviewed. We will have various manufacturers, tour operators, photography experts amongst other attractions.
For the first time, we are also branching out a bit and will be having some input from non-scuba related businesses such as Help for Heroes and some local companies will be present for your pleasure!
Everyone that attends this FREE event will be entered into our free prize draw with some amazing gear to win.

Closer to the event we will email the full list of exhibitors and events. We hope to see you then.
If you would like to guarantee a particular time for a try dive, please let us know in advance (available from 1pm on the day).
Team LSD is looking forward to seeing you on October 13th!

THE LONDON EVENT – Clean up will be 10am to (earliest) 2pm Potomac Lake in
Gunnersbury Park, Pope's Lane, London W3 8LQ
London School of Diving (LSD) is proud to be
spearheading GUWAA in the UK. We feel it is a great project to be involved
with, not just on the 16th September, but on an ongoing basis. There is nothing
more important than protecting the environment for future generations.
With this in mind, Nick Mobley, Managing
Director LSD and President GUWAA UK is also involving other organisations in
the project. Data from the clean up will be registered with Project Aware to
support the Divers against Debris programme and representatives from Mike's
Divestore, Diver Magazine and other charitable organisations will be coming
together to support GUWAA.
The site selected for the first GUWAA project is
Potomac Lake in Gunnersbury Park. London Borough of Hounslow and London Borough of Ealing Council have a long term
regeneration/heritage project for the Gunnersbury Park, recognised as one
of the most important parks in the England which was purchased for the nation
from the Rothschild family in the 1920’s.
As far as we are aware, this lake has never been dived (or
for at least 20+ years). Safety in diving is paramount, so with this in mind,
LSD sent a team of experienced divers to 'recce' the lake to ensure risks to
participants in the clean up are minimized.
Joanna Jones UK representative for GUWAA added
‘This is a fantastic global initiative to protect and clean the most precious
resource we have – water. Everyone can be responsible’
