Droitwich Spa Lido is Worcestershire's finest outdoor pool, open during the summer months it's the ideal day out for all the family. Early birds looking to swim in fresh air can also take advantage of our early morning swim sessions at a discounted rate. There's plenty here to keep the kids happy too, our 'Wet Play Area' full of water cannons and fountains will ensure the kids have a splashing good time. And for those sun bathers amongst you why not catch the rays and relax on the sun terraces. Droitwich Spa Lido is one of the UK's few remaining open-air saltwater swimming pools, and with a 40m pool, wet play area, sun terraces and Lido Café you're sure to have a memorable day out!

Well, on a hot day they are queuing round the block to get in here. Very popular. Pool was deemed to be a little on the chilly side and getting a seat was also a challenge. So be early as the car park is also a challenge. Worth a visit

I went a couple of times this summer as we've had some warm dry weather for a change. Lovely to swim outdoors. It was busy as expected early afternoon, but still possible to have a proper swim- they limit the maximum number allowed in. Facilities were good- clean changing rooms, efficient lockers and showers, friendly staff. Lots of families sitting... More

This is perfect for a hot summers day but be warned the water is freezing!! And if you have children under 8 you have to be in the water with them! however it is as close as it gets to actually being on holiday only a few minutes drive from home loads of deck chairs. The children loved it and... More

Feels a bit like being on holiday! Lovely, big pool with separated areas for swimmers and a good sized shallow end with a water sprinter. The separate splash pool is great fun for kids, with water cannons and sprinklers. There were several lifeguards who were very observant and quick to enforce the rules but in a very friendly manner. We... More

I have not visited here for years. My son suggested he wanted to go swimming today, I fancied something interesting and the renovated Lido hits the target. The other reviews are all accurate. We were warmly welcomed at the pay desk by Pauline. Please review their tariff on-line at wychavonleisure.co.uk select 'Our Centres' select 'Droitwich Spa & Lido'. A representative... More

We have been a few times with young children. It's fantastic to have this facility available and the children always love going. They can't stay too long in the water as despite heating it is, as you would expect of an outdoor pool, on the cool side. However, a hot chocolate from the café is always a timely treat. The...

We tried to visit a few weeks ago on a hot sunny day and were amazed by the massive queue stretching all the way through the car park to the main road. There seemed to be one member of staff selling tickets and no one took pity on those queuing to let them know whether there was any chance of... More

We drove 18 miles to come to this outdoor pool in Droitwich. I'm glad I found it online. Since we have been a few times already! My girls are absolutely loving it. It's a wonderful pool for family with kids to chill out in summer. And it's very good value for money.

I have lived in the West Midlands for most of my life and was amazed to stumble upon thjs pool when I searched the internet for open air swimming. We visited on a hot day in the school holidays, so the pool was busy, but arrived early as I made a mistake about the opening times. I was glad I... More
