We arrived half an hour after opening to find they weren't letting anyone in as it was full. We would've been happy to queue for a while but it appeared that they weren't giving customers timed sessions. We were told to try back for the...More

Great place to enjoy the sun and jump in for a quick dip to cool down. Not a swimmer's pool. I visited on a Monday lunchtime during term time. Thought it might be quiet- but no. Queuing out the door just 30 mins after it...More

Went in summer. Despite the lovely weather, the pool was atrociously cold- my daughter mentioned how it would be warmer to jump into the Pacific ocean! The pool was heaving with children (not that this is a bad thing- however there didn't seem to be...More

Small pool but very clean and adequate for a splash about. Not really a lane swimmers pool. Kids had a great day. Coffee and ice creams available all very reasonably priced. Pool was heated but still quite chilly for little ones. Do get there early...More

Went to the Lido this evening after spending years talking about going there but never made it. We went after 5.30pm thinking that it might be a bit less busy. The pool was clean, warm-ish and better than we expected. However, the experience was ruined...More

Great improvement with new surround and liner. Cleanliness very good with lifeguard spot on with ph checks and continual dredging with net. Can get very busy....maybe consider doing timed slots?

Great pool does get busy though closed at the moment for water heating which will take the edge off that bracing bite and will be more child friendly

Woburn Lido is a traditional open air pool, open only in the summer months. Currently it's unheated, which makes for a bracing swim on cooler days - this evening, for example, the water temperature was 20 degC, which is a bit of a shock when...More
