Nothing beats swimming outdoors so why not visit Beccles Lido? The 30metre x 15metre outdoor pool, separate toddler pool and paddling pool are all heated to 27°C. There is a slide, springboard and giant-inflatable. Beccles Lido is on Puddingmoor, next to the River Waveney, with lots of grassy areas, sunloungers, tables and chairs to relax on. The cafe, with covered eating area, serves hot and cold snacks, delicious fairtrade coffee, tea and Italian hot chocolate, cold drinks and ices. Beccles Lido is the perfect place for a swim or a family day out. We also offer Canoe Hire (advance bookings only) from the Lido so you can take a paddle along the beautiful River Waveney. Or take a more relaxing river trip on Big Dog Ferry to the historic Locks Inn, Geldeston.

What a wonderful outdoor pool in a gorgeous location by the Norfolk Broads. Well run,open most of the day and catering for everyone . Indeed there is catering for food too which is incredibly popular. I adore my Spring/Summer swims there,even in the rain!

We spent a very nice morning at the Beccles Lido, the people were very welcoming, the pool and changing rooms were lovely and clean and the bacon rolls after the swim were delicious. Well done to all the volunteers who run the Lido

Brilliant place to take the kids swimming , clean , value for money. Plenty of life guards always on patrol . Cafe is good . Only downside is the parking . There isn't any at all really . Park in the town and walk 15 mins . Worth it though . Our visit was on a warm sunny day so... More

We brought our nephews to the lido..they like the diving board' slide and inflatables and seemed to have no problem making friends with the others. It was very hot and busy with loads of kids when we visited so I will stick to another time or pool for my lane swimming but I did brave the diving board a couple... More

Absolutely love the Lido. We come a lot in the summer - the pool is heated and while it's not roasting it's a totally fine temperature, certainly not cold. My kids love the diving board, very fast slide, and inflatable when it's available. Also good for adults - when it's not busy there is often a lane in for swimming.... More

The place is run as a charity, mostly by volunteers. The pools are open air, the larger pool has a diving board and small slide, the smaller pool is suitable for toddlers. There is seating available and basic food is served from their kitchen. It can get very busy (when you may not get in) and the car park is... More

The pool isn't large, the children had fun on the slide but on busy days, the inflatable attraction that is advertised is not put in the water so they can accommodate maximum numbers and they operate a coloured wristband system on a 20 minute basis so people have to get out of the pool, expect tantrums. There is no parking... More

Pool ok. Plenty of lifeguards. No inflatable due to wind ( which there was none today) teenage boys bored after initial swim. Seating area quite tired looking. Couldn't stay longer than an hour. Wouldn't recommend for older children.

1st visit. Took my 5 year old & she thouroghly enjoyed it although she needed an adult in the pool with her at all times. Water quite warm & clean. Food cheap & nice. Toilets & changing rooms on the smelly side though. Gets very busy. Parking is horrendous. We had to find a car park which was only for... More

A lovely day out at Beccles Lido. Water was lovely and warm and the kiosk did I super "messy chips" - chips, cheese and slaw! Coffee was great and served by lovely staff with smiley faces. Little one enjoyed the slide and playground - busy but bearable
