“Full of theives”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Place is pretty grubby and don't leave your belongings for one second they will be stolen by chavs they are everywhere waiting to get their hand on something, be warned! When I reported belongings being stolen they where little help. Food is also a rip off and out of the microwave!

“good day out”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

Three different depth pools - one for tiny tots - lots of open space - great day out - despite its age, well maintained and presented.. Shame we don't have enough good weather to use it more. Plenty of parking nearby

“Art Deco delight”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Beautiful listed Art Deco building. Fabulous clean pool, with a smaller one for the toddlers. Lots of outside space for sunbathing, play area for the little ones and a cafe for the obligatory tea and chips. Only negative point is that the changing rooms need updating. OTherwise a great place to spend a hot afternoon.

“A classic but needs some attention to the changing rooms”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

The Peterborough Lido is a great place to go in the summer and a unique attraction for this part of the UK. The building has lots of history which makes it distinctive from much of 1960's concrete Peterborough. The water, as expected for an outdoor pool, feels extremely cold but this adds to the fun. Lots of lifeguards are on duty and two smaller children's pools free up space for those wanting to swim lengths in the main pool. Prices are excellent and beat many indoor leisure centres.

Over the last few years there has been some modernisation, including resurfacing the main pool and improving the catering. However, I always find the changing rooms and showers rather depressing. Although clean, their is some graffiti and broken locks in the gentleman's changing room. After improvements to the pool, lets hope this gets some attention over the next few years while still keeping the character of the venue.

On a nice day in the summer, its definitely worth a visit.
