The lido is in a lovely spot with castle view. The car park is right outside. There are a good number of changing rooms, the pool is warm, there's a nice little playground, and plenty of green space for a picnic. So there was great potential for a lovely family morning out.

We went on a Wednesday morning to take my toddler swimming. The problem was the pool was overcrowded in the shallow end and we weren't allowed deeper than 1.2metres (where it was quieter) because of having a small child that can swim, but with assistance. It was impossible to swim as there was no space to move, too shallow to swim underwater safely, and not covid safe as you couldn't stay anywhere near 2 metres apart from others. Kids where diving into the pool very close to us. When I raised my concern with the life guards and wanted to move to a spot with more space I was told this wasn't allowed. I pointed out the fact we weren't able to keep 2m distance (as all their signs say we should be) and that we couldn't swim, and she had no helpful answer to this, and then as she turned away from me and towards where my husband was standing, she rolled her eyes at me. I therefore felt my legitimate concerns during a pandemic were not taken seriously and that this was also very rude.

So overall a disappointing visit. I would consider going back but only once covid is no longer a concern and my child is old enough to swim unassisted, so thst we can use the entire pool.

Today we came for a swim at the lido and we're remembering our lovely wedding celebtation from exactly a year ago today. What an amazing venue the marquee and field provided with the castle as a backdrop. We had great support from Nikkie and her team giving us ideas and hands on support before and during the party. We had food vans on the field and and a ceilidh band in the marquee and were free to bring our own alcohol. The marquee looked amazing with our bunting and decorations and we put fairy lights in the trees. It really is the best venue and all at a very reasonable price. We would recommend it to anyone. Thank you again Arundel Lido! Kath and Sue xxx

I was really disappointed by our visit last week. The main pool was absolutely overrun with people (yes I know its the summer holidays) but it was at the point it was actually unsafe with children jumping in from the side with no regards to who was in the pool. We had virtually no space to move around and I just wanted to get out. I found the main pool full of floating black bits throughout too, the whole area looks very tired and in need of renovation. I would suggest counting in and out a maximum number into the pool for safety and enjoyment. Honestly don't know how the lifeguards can do their job with that many people in a pool splashing about, it'd be like Where's Wally trying find someone in trouble.

In all honesty I shouldn’t be writing this review, as the Lido does not need publicity: it’s so popular that getting hold of tickets is difficult - which is not surprising as it is a lovely spot. Where else can you swim with such amazing views, in a beautiful warm pool? They opened early to alleviate lockdown, and it’s a huge success - every session is full, and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The Bootcamp sessions are also good - outdoor circuits with a friendly bunch of fitness fans.
Can’t wait for the Fido event! 🐾

We loved it
Great afternoon with the kids and first time they didn’t ask for anything!
Nice changing rooms, clean toilets and plenty of grass space.

I will say you need to get up there early as otherwise if you want something to sit on nothing will be left.

Parking is the car park is £3 and again limited space so just plan your day.

An wonderful Lido.
Lovely water temperature in this heated pool.
Very clean. Staff are friendly and helpful.
At present Covid measures are in place and you have you temperature taken and recorded.

I really enjoy my morning swim in the sunshine and open air.

I was very lucky coming here mid September, only four people in the pool, so had a big space to swim in the warm heated pool, you get a good view of Arundel Castle while swimming. The staff were helpul for first timers showing you where the changing rooms/ showers are etc. This is another place I can go if I feel like going swimming, hope to come back in spring time.

Pools really small, my three kids 11,9 and 6 weren’t allowed to all be in the paddling pool, we could only stay 20 minutes in the pool and we had to get out to queue up again. HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED!!!

The pool is nice but facilities are few. Drinks are served from the ticket office and the assistant is so miserable I don't why she is there if she hates it that much. However, the price to get in is a hefty £6.50. Then there is the parking fee on top of that. £1.20 for 2 hours or £2.80 for 4 hours. I feel it is all grossly overpriced. Its a shame because it puts me off visiting it again. £4.00 would be more than enough and parking should be free if using the pool. To nip in and have a quick dip would bankrupt someone.
