  • Great out door pool for whole family. Very traditional, well maintained and inviting to use. Visitors and staff are friendly and helpful.
  • Lovingly restored to give an authentic 30s feel e.g the wooden changing cubicles. Who needs mod cons when you can swim outdoors in a huge pool? Water temperatures seem to vary from visit to visit. The wooden slides are great fun for kids and there's plenty of green space nearby for them to run around. Friendly staff and lifeguards who are vigilant and enforce the rules calmly and politely. Tip: arrive when it opens, get to the café before the place begins to fill, leave as it fills and never, every go on a sunny day in the Summer holidays when the place is a crowded hell.
  • Brilliant place. Would give it 10 stars if possible. 50 meter Olympic size pool with a couple of slides that are open on sunny days. Nice baby pool. Lovely cafe with good selection at reasonable prices. Also has nice little sauna at the moment. Lots of really good events on as well both in sport and entertainment. The outdoor cinema is excellent. The staff are all very nice too. Lots of lifeguards and helpers. Love this place.
  • Wonderfully maintained Olympic sized pool and baby pool too. Sauna on site for over 18s. Cafe and sheltered outdoor seating area. Large grassy area and play area for younger children. 2 short slides into the pool.
  • I'm so grateful that this 1930s built lido is kept operating to such a high standard. The first thing you see is the large fountain, then a Great big pool which is heated, and a lovely kiddies pool. Beautiful period atmosphere maintained with original changing rooms etc. You can eat drink relax exercise socialise and let your eyes take in something that wouldn't be replicated ever again.
