Whether you are looking for a bite to eat, the perfect souvenir for a friend or member of family, fancy treating yourself to an ice cream, or are simply looking to entertain your young ones for the afternoon, there's great value family fun for everyone at The Worthing Lido! We have various children's amusements both indoor and out, making The Worthing Lido Entertainment Centre the perfect all-year-round seafront attraction. THE LIDO ENTERTAINMENT CENTRE Outdoors we have a number of great value children's rides, including trampolines, bouncy slide, teacups, flying jets and the Disney Express train ride. We offer a special wristband deal which entitles the wearer to use of all five of the main rides listed above. This is priced at just £6.00 for three hours, or £9.00 for the entire day! In the amusements arcade we have various classic and modern video games including Sega Rally, The Fast and Furious and House of the Dead 4, a new quiz machine featuring up-to-date versions of games such as Pointless, Deal or No Deal and Match of the Day, an air hockey table and various crane grabbers. We also have many variations of the old family favourite 2p slot machines, plus a mixture of fruit machines. THE LIDO RESTAURANT Feeling peckish? Then why not make the most of the stunning sea views from The Lido Restaurant while tucking into lunch from a great traditional sea menu. Located on the west side of the building, The Lido Café also offers a wide selection of hot and cold drinks and light snacks. THE LIDO GIFT SHOP Looking for the perfect souvenir for a friend or member of family? Then check out The Lido Gift Shop, located at the front of The Lido on the right hand side of the main entrance, where you can find everything from Worthing postcards to house ornaments. We also sell various beach toys and inflatables. THE LIDO ICE CREAM SHOP Finally, don't forget to pay a visit to The Lido Ice Cream and Rock Shop where we sell a large selection of rock, toffee and fudge, as well as ice lollies and of course the classic 99 ice cream. We also sell delicious fruit smoothies which provide half of your five a day!

Difficult to review The Lido as my children love it and I have taken them here on many many occasions. They enjoy the 2p machines and the air hockey but don't use the outside attractions apart from the pirate game. It's not a bad way to spend half an hour but it's just that it has so much potential admittedly... More

Formerly a swimming lido & in 1988 a temp home for Brighton's dolphins ....yes dolphins, but a year later concreted over into a small entertainment area. Arcade looked rather grotty & with obvious dubious characters in it playing 2 fruit machines at once. Unfair to comment on kids rides as no kids. Didn't feel wise to walk round to the... More

It's a bit hard to know what to say about the Lido. It has a few shops, for souvenirs and the like, and the inside has a play area for children, but it just suffers from a complete lack of atmosphere. We went in the height of summer, albeit on a weekday, and the place was very quiet, just a... More

It's in dyer need of a refit ! The team are superb ! The arcades are well ! Arcades.. The shops sell cheap tat. It's like a mini slice of Brighton yet on a very small scale can get busy in season. It kills twenty mins

The Lido sits on the beach side of Worthing's seafront. Many years ago it was a swimming pool but was covered in and converted into a selection of gift shops, cafe/restaurants, children's rides, ice cream parlour and a stage from which entertainment is performed over the weekend in the 'season'. Whilst there is something for everyone, it is probably best... More

This is a nice little venue to entertain the family for an hour or so. Arcade was small but well equipped so had a hour of fun in there. Also there seemed to be some little rides for the kids which we did not use so can't comment other than they were there

Rides/amusements are quite expensive and staff are very strict on monitoring "you only get 3 minutes" The rides and amusements are ok but the atmosphere is seriously lacking Got a wrist band so the kids could go on as much as they wanted and was still told ...... 3 minutes! Go to Littlehampton!

Visited as was in the area for the night and walked past. My son went on 3 rides. Didn't feel it was beneficial to pay for a wristband as there weren't many rides there at all. Staff were pleasant enough. The only thing that I didn't like was 'rubbish everywhere' some staff were sat doing nothing so they could have... More
