Owner description: Nothing beats swimming outdoors so why not visit Beccles Lido? The 30metre x 15metre outdoor pool, separate toddler pool and paddling pool are all heated to 27°C. There is a slide, springboard and giant-inflatable. Beccles Lido is on Puddingmoor, next to the River Waveney, with lots of grassy areas, sunloungers, tables and chairs to relax on. The cafe, with covered eating area, serves hot and cold snacks, delicious fairtrade coffee, tea and Italian hot chocolate, cold drinks and ices. Beccles Lido is the perfect place for a swim or a family day out. We also offer Canoe Hire (advance bookings only) from the Lido so you can take a paddle along the beautiful River Waveney. Or take a more relaxing river trip on Big Dog Ferry to the historic Locks Inn, Geldeston.

“A bit different”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Family if 4 came for a few hours. Was quite sunny, not sure how pleasant it would be in poor weather .
Price was fine, food reasonable and surprisingly good too.

Water was pleasant, place was clean and really suited for families. People had brought picnics....even wine I think !!

Worth a visit on a sunny day!!

“Great place on a hot sunny day”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

This heated outdoor pool is great for a family day out. Pool has slide, spring board, childrens and baby pool all well lifeguarded. Changing and toilet facilities are a bit basic but how many towns can boost this type of facility. The cafe serves drinks and hot snacks at a reasonable price. Best to park the car in the town and walk down as car parking at the pool is very restrictive.

“Perfect day out.”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

The lido has so many faces, the dawn swim with the gentle folk of Beccles is a delight, later as the more assertive swimmers do their lanes it changes , and when it is full of young people, couples families all just having a grand day out, you cannot help but smile.

“Excellent Day Out”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

Second time we have visited the lido. Brilliant day out, great value for money. Changing facilities and toilets a bit basic bit you're not in them for long! Food good quality and great value. Lots to keep kids entertained. Ours (12 & 9) love the pool, the slide, diving board and inflatable obstacle course!! Getting there early is a must because the queues do get big! One of our favourite places to spend the day.
