Swimming at the Lido


We know that Guildford Lido is a much loved local attraction where families and groups of friends come to relax and socialise for the whole day.
Despite numerous discussions with Guildford Borough Council and under the new coronavirus guidelines, we would be unable to offer visitors that experience.

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcoming visitors in 2021.

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.
