Swimming at the Lido

50 metre swimming pool

Guildford Lido is one of the few 1930's outdoor pools set in 4 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and heated to 24 degrees centigrade, the Olympic sized pool is a great place to chill out, meet friends, picnic and of course, swim!

During the summer season the Lido is available for casual visits, early morning swims and private hire. The venue has been used to host a variety of events from outdoor concerts to informal parties and BBQ's.

I love using Guildford Lido. It is a brilliant local resource, one we are lucky to have.


The 10-lane 50 metre pool is open to season ticket holders and members of the public throughout the summer season. The Lido is open early in the morning for lane swimming sessions and then is open for open swimming during the day.

On certain days during the week and at weekends the pool is open for evening lane swimming.

slides & paddling pools 2019

Due to essential maintenance, the paddling pools and slides will be closed temporarily for the start of the 2019 season. The works are necessary and it is hopedthat we can have them fully open for the latter part of June and the high season. The work is to improve the filtration systems of these specific features but it will not impact on the main pool which will remain open throughout the season.

We'd like to apologise for any inconvenience caused but the works are essential to improve water quality and the safety of our visitors.
