Thank you so much for letting us and our dogs swim today. We and Millie loved it and we have a very tired dog now. Please put us on the list for next year. All the dogs were so well behaved just a wonderful event

Lovely way to spend an hour on a cloudy Saturday. Pool is perfectly fine temperature for some lengths (and when you're adjusted a natter at the end). So good to swim outside, water is clear, pool is clean and you can see the sky. We...More

We expected rather more and were rather disappointed. The lido was run down and the changing rooms, showers and toilets dilapidated and dirty. The lockers didn’t work on the main historic art deco building was screened off by builders hoardings. That said, we went on...More
