This is an extraordinary place. The outdoor pool is 100 yards long. It has one unavoidable disadvantage: the pool isn't heated. I find it a refreshing place to swim and the surrounding trees and shrubs make it feel secluded even though it's near the city...More

Jesus Green Lido opened today (13th May) for the 2017 Season. This is always a great place to swim and the staff welcoming. Hopefully the water will get warmer as the season progresses. At the moment a chilly 11 degrees!

So refreshing! Generally not too crowded perfect for sunny days, it's a shame it closes during winter, also there's a sauna available and great food like paninis!

This is a real find for a hot summer's day that won't break the bank if you have kids. The pool is the longest I've ever seen and I'm told a little cold but the overall experience and setting are charming. There's enough facilities for...More

This is a great place to spend a summer day! We had a refreshing swim ( not heated, 20 degrees) in the late afternoon sun. Facilities may be a bit dated, but the pool has lots of charm. Despite living in Cambridge for 15 years...More
