What a gem of a place
Aug 2021 • Family
So glad we found this little gem of a place. Friendly staff, well run, and good value for money in the swimming sessions and refreshments.

2020 change makes a huge difference to the community
Apr 2021 • Friends
Woburn lido has shown itself to be a huge asset to the community in 2020 and beyond. The thought which went in to changing the opening times, criterion and setup has bee rewarded with a huge following of devoted cold water swimmers in winter and enthusiastic, sensible families throughout the summer.
The restriction on numbers has improved the experience, the lane swimming and over 60’s sessions are also an excellent addition.
Thank you to the Trustees of this great facility for thinking outside the box and helping your community stay sane through winter as well as summer! 👍

Ruined by a useless website
Aug 2020
Having used this pool for a number of years, the new booking system is a total joke. You pick your slot and try to enter the details of people swimming, but it tries to force you to enter an e-mail address for children. When you finally enter all the details, you hit submit so you can pay and it blanks out the fields.

The pool seems to be heavily weighted to old wrinklies lane swimming, instead of catering for the vast majority of customers, who are actually families.

When you call to try and book something over the phone, you are told to use the website, which doesn't work properly...and it's back to square one.

This is one customer who will be going elsewhere.

Amazing outdoor lido!
May 2021 • Family
We live in Milton Keynes. Unbelievably this was our first visit to Woburn lido, wish l’d known about it when the kids were little.

Took the teenagers and a picnic. It was a cold day which was a shame as we were cold both in and out of the pool, but as you need to book quite far in advance to get tickets, you can’t predict the weather!

The pool and surrounding area was very clean, there are plenty of chairs and a few picnic tables. The showers were gloriously warm after our cold dip.

The lifeguard was very welcoming and helpful, explaining the facilities and rules. Was happy to let us use our inflatable.

There is one toilet on site. There are some small booth tents for changing out of wet costumes.

Great place for families. Lovely afternoon together!

Lovely summer swim
Aug 2020
We managed to visit twice in 2020 and what a lovely time we had! Pool was warm and perfect for a gentle swim. (We went during the adult lane swim).
Friendly volunteers who had a chat with us both times. Good social disctancing measures. I'm so glad they were able to open during this pandemic and likewise that we managed to go twice.
Not that many lidos left in the UK, especially ones open during 2020, and this is just such a wonderful one!

Outdoor swim
Aug 2019 • Solo
A lovely little Lido, perfect for a nice outdoor swim, unfortunately my visit was overshadowed by dozens and dozens of kids running around totally unsupervised, couldn’t swim due to diving and bombing, lifeguard wasn’t interested, I’m no killjoy and understand kids let off steam but cmon parents have a little respect for others and keep them under control.

This swimming pool has helped families with young children keep them entertained during this long hot summer.

Mainly for families with small children
Aug 2018 • Couples
If you are looking for a relaxing cool-off in the sunshine then this isn't the place. The pool isn't huge so the children (naturally) are constantly swimming into you. The grass area was very basic with an unwelcome amount of litter strewn around the edge.

Not bad
Jul 2018 • Family
Came here for the first time today. Despite website advertising pool is closed between 1:30-2:30pm, I arrived just after 1:30pm and it was open. Car park is cramped and very limited. There is only 1 designated space for the disabled. The prices were also slightly higher than what is shown on the website also. It’s also cash only.
The pool itself was a very comfortable temperature, lots of seating round the outside and a small field area at the back. Drinks and ice cream available.
The changing room (female) floor was filthy and brown. There were only 2 cubicles and the toilets had no loo roll.
Did enjoy it despite this but just be prepared that it’s small and not very well maintained as a normal pool would be as it’s run locally. The few staff that were there were friendly and helpful.
