Had a really enjoyable day at Guildford lido, great size swimming pool, water slides, large grass area to sunbathe, food area. Only downside was you pay extra to go on the slides which I think should have been included. But overall worth a visit.

This is a fantastic place to come and swim, the facilities are a bit tired and old fashioned but this just adds to the charm of the place.

This is a lovely outdoor pool with plenty of grassy area to sit. The staff are very polite and the lifeguards are certainly on the ball. The change rooms are very clean I will definitely return and certainly recommend this pool.
