The Lido pool is lovely but can get a bit busy on hot summer weekends. The café is excellent with a good menu. Well worth a visit

We waited over an hour for food and nothing arrived (we ordered salad!). Terrible staff. This place is a shambles. Do not bother if you can help it.

Went to start my open water and wetsuit season with a friend and loved the pool. Lovely clear water, beautiful location and changing / locker facilities. Then a quick drive to Herne Hill for well deserved brunch after 20 lengths and 1,000m. Wetsuits and costumes...More

The cafe is billed as a popular trendy place that often requires tables to be booked ahead of time. Sadly, the reality is somewhat different. Rude waitresses, slow service and average food. The only thing of interest was the view. Avoid if at all possible

On a very hot day the queue for the lido does get pretty long but if you are planning to spend a while there it is worth it. The water is extremely cold but super refreshing if it is too hot to do much! Took...More

I was a member here for a couple of years but I haven't been one for several months now. Although I've always been one to go to the gym, I found myself avoiding this place because it doesn't feel clean. The machines are grubby. The...More

Absolutely LOVED the food and atmosphere at the lido. They do a mean brunch, that can easily turn into lunch! Lovely place to catch up with friends!

Friendly receptionist to greet us and changing rooms were fine for the small number of people who were there on such a cold day. Everyone was chatty in the changing rooms and pool - brought together by a love of cold swimming. Plenty of lifeguards...More

Yes there are bike racks directly at the front outside reception so pretty safe because it’s always busy there and staff can see the racks from the reception desk.
