I rang in advance to check the water temperature so was not surprised when the water was 17 degrees - quite refreshing. What was a surprise was how run down the place is. I've just done a tour of 6 other Lido's and this is...More

As a first time visitor I found the pool was well organised & well staffed. However the actual pool was rather chilly when you got in (it's not heated) but you soon warm up when you start swimming and their was a lot of leaves...More

one of the 2 longest outdoor pools in the UK apparently and it is harder than I thought to swim a length in the cold water but it is cool to swim outdoors and sunbathe on the sides afterwards. Shame changing facilities are so old...More

This is an extraordinary place. The outdoor pool is 100 yards long. It has one unavoidable disadvantage: the pool isn't heated. I find it a refreshing place to swim and the surrounding trees and shrubs make it feel secluded even though it's near the city...More
