Real fun if you're a half decent swimmer, not heated so go on a hot day, you can walk from the main tourist area.

As a first time visitor I found the pool was well organised & well staffed. However the actual pool was rather chilly when you got in (it's not heated) but you soon warm up when you start swimming and their was a lot of leaves...More

Pool really is lovely, the pool and the area around the pool is very clean and really nice, its the changing rooms really let this place down. They're filthy dirty, full of cobwebs and there was mouldy food in one so who knows when they...More

Jesus Green Lido opened today (13th May) for the 2017 Season. This is always a great place to swim and the staff welcoming. Hopefully the water will get warmer as the season progresses. At the moment a chilly 11 degrees!

Jesus Green lido is one of the largest outdoor pools in Europe. Although its temperature seldom rises much above 21º C even at the height of summer, it's incredible length and calm, secluded setting behind a screen of tall trees make it one of Cambridge's...More
