Type: Leisure / Swimming Pool

The Lido is open for the 2015 season from Sunday 3rd May

Guildford’s open-air pool, the Lido, is open during the summer season from May to September.  Public swimming from 10.30am - 6.30pm.

Set in 4½ acres of beautifully landscaped gardens the heated Olympic sized pool is a great place to chill out, meet friends, picnic and of course, do some serious swimming!

The Lido is one of Guildford’s greatest treasures. Tucked away next to Guildford College and 1 minute from the A3, it is one of the country’s few remaining original 1930’s pools. The Lido attracts an average of 60,000 people every season and is home for a variety of community galas, competitions and other community clubs and societies.

The Lido is also a great venue for private hire with corporate BBQ’s our speciality.

A mini golf course is available at the Lido.

Guildford Lido now boasts three new and exciting slides as well as the newly refurbished paddling pool with interactive toys and a mini-slide for the very little ones.

Customers will be able to ride the MULTISLIDE which has two lanes side-by-side so two people can race themselves to see who's the fastest and if your brave enough take on the KAMAKAZIE - one slide, straight down BOOM!

For a more gentler experience meander down the ANACONDA but look out for those tricky corners that will make you go faster!

All round great family entertainment however there are restrictions to ensure that everyone is safe and they can enjoy the experience of the NEW Lido slides.

At the bottom of the slides our contractors have reinstated the paddling pool and added some new interactive toys and a NEW little slide for our younger swimmers.
